Jimenez-Landi Mentrida 'Pielago' 2010
Jimenez-Landi has deep winemaking roots in the DO of Mentrida, producing exquisite Grenache-based wines from old vines farmed organically and biodynamically. All wines ferment with natural yeasts and are aged in oak barrels. The 2010 ‘Pielago’ is developing beautifully, showing notes of red fruit, black tea, herbs, and cherries, with undertones of scorched earth and spice giving way to a lingering finish. Thought-provoking and crazy aromatic!
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
