D.O. Campo de Borja (Aragón)
Cuevas de Arom is the new project of Bodegas Frontonio in Ainzón , Zaragoza. Here, Fernando, Mario and Francisco, vinify old Grenache in the traditional way, recreating the atmosphere of the caves of Ainzón, where wine was made in the olden days. To do this, they have cement deposits below the Cooperative Santo Cristo de Ainzón. Here, they age their wines at very low temperatures and thus less oxidation.
Cuevas de Arom works with the vineyards of the cooperative partners with the aim of placing value on some of the oldest and most unique Grenache vineyards. Their wines seek a more elegant profile with more freshness, thanks to a slighter extraction and less marked notes of the barrel.
Os Cantals is a wine made with Grenache from two of the best vineyards of Ainzón, where we can find different kinds of soil such as stony, deep, calcareous and clayey ones.
After the manual harvest, the grapes are cooled for 48 hours. After this time, the grapes are destemmed and fermented in 600-litre oak foudres with native yeasts. After the fermentation, the wine is transferred to new oak barrels to carry out the malolactic fermentation. Here, the wine will remain between ten and twelve months.
