Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Frontonio La Cerqueta Special Cuvée is a single-variety Garnacha red wine produced by Bodegas Frontonio as a Vino de la Tierra (VT) from Valdejalón, in Aragón, Spain.

 

Frontonio La Cerqueta Special Cuvée is made with grapes that come from sustainably cultivated, traditional mountain vineyards. The plots lie at an altitude of 630 metres and the soils are composed of blue and grey slates with an average slope of 8.5%. The vines are aged over 75 years old.

 

When they reach the winery, the Garnacha is pressed, 60% of the bunches are left with stalks. Fermentation takes place under native yeasts with 47 days in bocoy-style wooden containers. For better extraction, there are one or two cap plunges per day.  The resulting wine ages for 14 months in foudres.

 

The Frontonio winery is run by Spanish Master of Wine Fermando Mora, a wine enthusiast whose passion has driven him to discover and rescue traditional vineyards that were on the edge of extinction, using traditional cultivation, as if he were an artisan. He ages his unique wines in a cave and takes care of his vines with the utmost care for the environment. He makes high quality small productions like this Frontonio La Cerqueta Special Cuvée, which is well worth discovering and enjoying.

Bodegas Frontonio was created in 2008 by three friends from Aragón, Fernando Mora, aspirant Master of Wine, Mario López, oenologist from Bodegas Borsao, and Francisco Latasa, lawyer and international trade expert. Fernando started making wines in his parents’ garage. Shortly after, his two friends joined him on this fabulous journey.
