Comando G Tierra de Castilla y Leon 'Tumba del Rey Moro' 2016
Self-proclaimed ‘Garnachistas,’ Comando G focuses on single-vineyard Grenache, hailing from rugged, mountain top vineyards across Gredos. ‘Tumba del Rey Moro’ comes from high elevation, granitic-sandy soils, farmed organically and biodynamically. The juice is cold macerated, then fermented and aged 12 months in wood, giving way to an expressive, aromatic final wine, oozing with notes of red and dark fruits, spice, and well-integrated oak.
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.
