Characteristics of Las Uvas de la Ira Vino del Pueblo
Las Uvas de la Ira Vino del Pueblo is a red wine from D.O. Méntrida produced by Daniel Landi winery.
Daniel Gómez Jiménez Landi started out in his family winery, Jiménez Landi winery, before launching a project to make wines in his own winery.
Additionally, participants from the Comando G project, produce great wines from old vines of the recuperated Grenache variety.
It is Daniel Landi who is in love with this variety, the old vines and the viticulture with little intervention.
Las Uvas de la Ira Vino del Pueblo is a single variety Grenache red wine. The grapes are produced from three small plots (just over two hectares in total) of old vines, more than 60 years old, they are planted at an altitude of 800-900 metres above sea level and almost vertical, with a 50% gradient.
Some of the vines were in a poor condition when they were recovered by Daniel Landi, vineyards surrounded by hills with a lot of vegetation and aromatic plants. The soils are slate soils. They have a humid Mediterranean climate and it is quite warm.
The grapes are fermented in French oak vats with local yeast from their own vineyards.
Las Uvas de la Ira Vino del Pueblo undergoes an aging in 2000 to 3000 litre French oak barrels; it ages for 10 months. It is bottled without filtration nor stabilisation.

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.
Daniel Landi spent eight years at the helm of the family-owned Jiménez-Landi winery, and also participated in the Comando G project with his friend Fernando García.
Daniel has recently decided to undertake his project independently.
