Style Sotorrondero 2021
Jimenez Landi Sotorrondero 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.
