Jimenez-Landi Mentrida 'Cantos del Diablo' 2016
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 lark oak barrels. ‘Cantos del Diablo’ is a silky and aromatic varietal Grenache, showing flavors of juicy red fruit, savory earthy, and spice. Fresh and balanced-- we’d grab two.
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.
