Characteristics of La Fábula
La Fábula is a wine produced by Bodegas 4 Monos in Sierra de Gredos, the Ávila province, like Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León. It is a single variety Grenache, grown in small vineyards of century old Grenache in recuperation since 2009.
The vines are planted on a slope on a 45% gradient, this makes it very difficult to cultivate so all the work is done with animals.
The plots can be found at an altitude between 850 and 900 metres above sea level in a mountainous terrain where there is thyme, rosemary and fennel. The soil is very shallow, with slate bed rock and quartz incrustations that support the wines and give it a special character.
4 Monos practices an agriculture that follows ecological criteria with a lot of respect for the land.
The harvest is done by hand with the help of animals due to the gradient of the terrain. There is the first selection of the bunches from the vineyard, and a second selection of the grape berries once the grapes have arrived at the winery.
The grapes from each plot are vinified separately. The fermentation with the entire bunch is produced natural by hand using yeast from their own vineyards and by applying a soft pressing of the grape. After a long pressing, La Fábula undergoes an aging in used French oak barrels where it rests for 18 months.
