Frontonio
Telescópico

Blanco 2016

DESCRIPTION

Frontonio Telescopico Blanco 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, Francisco Latasa and Mario López without any fuss.

TASTING NOTES

Lemon colour. Delicate lemon peel, peach skin, white flowers, violets together with smoked and mineral hints. Lees stirring for 6 months. Dry, crisp acidity, integrated alcohol adding creamy texture. Medium body, very long, concentrated and intense profile. .
