SightDense wine with a shiny cherry colour.NoseIn the nose clean aromas with a marked intensity are noticed, which become more expressive as they get aerated. The aromas of ripe red and black fruit, blueberries, plums and figs are released along with balsamic notes and an interesting mineral background.TasteGood attack and powerful while pleasant mid palate. This red wine stands out for its balance between its ripe and soft tannins and an acidity that provides it with plenty of life. Long and persistent finish.
Méntrida, like other famous wine regions of La Mancha, is steeped in history. The vines here grow under bright blue Castilian skies in a landscape which enjoys spectacular views of the snowy mantle of the Sierra de Gredos. The character of the wines produced here, tough and honest, were always enjoyed by the Habsburg Dynasty in Madrid. That being said, a new generation of wine is emerging, albeit at a slower rate than other regions in Spain, renovating wineries with modern equipment with a generation of young winemakers who are producing pleasant and balanced wines, some have even managed to recover the local flavour of its wines using the classic earthenware jars, now appreciated and fashionable in other areas.
They are a small winery located in the town of Méntrida, town of rich history in wine that gives name to the appellation of origin in northwestern province of Toledo: DO Méntrida. The winery is part of the family home whose oldest part, the cave chopped by hand, goes back to the seventeenth century and in which their ancestors elaborated in earthen jars. The current project led by Jose Benavides Jiménez - Landi, Daniel Gómez Jiménez - Landi starts in 2004 with the sole aim of producing wines based on respect for the environment, tradition and balance with our environment.
