Characteristics of Sotorrondero
Jimenez Landi Sotorrondero 2013 is a red wine from Méntrida produced by the Jimenez Landi winery. This winery is located in the Toledo Méntrida village, northwest of Castilla la Mancha.
Jimenez Landi Sotorrondero is a blend of Syrah (40%) and Grenache (60%). The Syrah grapes come from vineyards planted 12 years ago at 630m altitude, located in the village of Méntrida.
The Garnacha grapes come from old vines planted 45 years ago at an altitude of between 750 and 850 metres and are located in the Royal town of San Vicente.
The vines are planted on sandy-granitic soils and cultivated using organic farming and little interventionist methods that prioritise manual work rather than use of machinery.
The development of Jimenez Landi Sotorrondero begins with a manual harvest in boxes in mid-September. Once in the winery and after stripping, fermentation takes place in wooden vats and steel tanks for 15-30 days. Then malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels.
After the fermentation process, the wine is aged for 11 months in French oak barrels. Before marketing Jimenez Landi Sotorrondero is neither clarified nor filtered.

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.
