Characteristics of Finca Sandoval Signo
Finca Sandoval Signo is a red wine that is part of a personal project that began in 1998 by the wine journalist and critic Victor de la Serna in Manchuela. His small winery is characterised by a low production but high quality.
Finca Sandoval Signo is made using 2 grape varieties, Bobal and Syrah. The harvest of these grapes is carried out manually, where the 2 different varieties are then vinified seperately. The fermentation takes place in small open tanks with frequent punching down the cap. The wine then ages for 11 months in French oak barrels. This wine is neither filtered nor clarified.

Once oxygenated, fruity aromas appear, very ripe black fruit balanced with delicious roasted notes, spices and balsamic nuances. Complex, strong and elegant.TasteThis wine shows powerful attack which softens in the mouth, warming and silky on the palate. A surprising, deep, defined and refreshing acidity with very nice tannins. Long and very persistent finish.
Over the past few years, the DO Manchuela has worked extensively on improving the quality of its wines, and it is clear that its efforts have paid off. Improved technological advances and greater knowledge in the cultivation of their vineyards have launched the region into a new era. The wines produced here are enjoyed both in the domestic and the international market, with 80% of production sold internationally. Harvests are now carried out slightly sooner to produce slightly subtler wines, with the skins being separated from the must to get more subdued colours, while the wines are cold stabilized and undergo fermentation in controlled temperatures, in search of fruity aromas.
Finca Sandoval is the personal project started by Victor de la Serna, the wine journalist and writer, in 1998. It is essentially based in the production of his own 10.5 ha vineyards planted with syrah in the heart of Cuenca within the Designation of Origin Manchuela, on calcareous and clay soils at an altitude of 770 m. They were planted on the base of the knowledge acquired over 30 years on the soils of the area, which have an enormous potential for the production of high quality wines, especially red.
