Characteristics of Ataulfos
Jiménez-Landi Ataulfos is a red wine from D.O. Méntrida produced by the winery Jiménez-Landi. It is a single-variety wine made with Grenache. Jiménez-LandiAtaulfos takes its name from the plot where the grapes come from. It is a 60-year-old vineyard planted in vase-shape with one and a half hectares. The soils are sandy of silicon origin. The plots are located at an altitude of 830 metres and the climate of the area has continental and Mediterranean influences. The viticulture carried out is organic. The harvest of the grape bunches used in Jiménez-Landi Ataulfos is manual and the grapes are taken to the winery in small boxes to prevent them from breaking. Once they arrive at the winery and without destemming, they go through alcoholic fermentation in barrels for 35 days. Then, the malolactic fermentation takes place in the same containers. Lastly, Jiménez-Landi Ataulfos rests for 20 months in French oak barrels of 500 to 3,000 litres capacity. This wine is bottled without being clarified, filtered, or stabilised by cold.

Jiménez-Landi Ataulfos 2016 is an intense, balanced and easy to drink red wine. A great vintage of this Grenache, which shows us all its personality and the character of the terroir with a very fine minerality. Ripe red fruit with floral notes and a balsamic touch.
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.
