Frontonio
Microcósmico

Garnacha 2016

DESCRIPTION

Frontonio Mictrocósmico Garnacha is named after Saint Frontonio, the patrón saint of Épila, a town in Valdejalón, North-East Spain, where it is produced. Legend has it that Saint Frontonio was beheaded by the Romans. His body was buried in a cemetery and his head was thrown into the River Ebro near Zaragoza. Miraculously, his head was later found going upstream along the banks of the River Jalón in Épila. Likewise, this limited production of “micro” wine is the result of rowing against the stream. It is also something of a miracle. It comes from a humble garage where it is made by Fernando Mora MW, Mario López and Francisco Latasa without any fuss.

TASTING NOTES

Pale ruby. Raspberry and strawberry over mineral, white pepper and smoked back ground. MLF and ageing for 10 months in concrete vats creates austere and floral elegant style. Dry, fresh acidity, moderate fine tannins and muscular texture. A medium length pure complex wine.
