(2016) 70% Listan Negra fermented in tank, 30% Tintia aged one year in older barrel. From a warmer year, and sandy soils over the volcanic base, the vineyards at 475 to 550 metres. This is more solid in a way, arguably more orthodox, with that bloody and gamy character, such delicious spice and depth red fruits flirting with black fruit for the first time. Drink now - 2020.
(2016) A vineyard of Listán Negro, ungrafted vines between 80 and 150 years old, that is exposed to evening sun, making it a particularly warm and sunny site. Roberto thinks this wine needs more time in barrel to round it out, so this 2011 is current vintage (similar vintage conditions to 2013). A softer ruby color, then plenty of violet bouquet which Roberto says is a result of low pH and high acidity. Again meaty and a little more vanilla and elegant on the palate, deliciously together though just missing that startling freshness of the best wines here.
