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 and Mario López without any fuss.
Lemon colour. Delicate lemon peel, white flowers, violets together with baked and mineral hints. Lees stirring for 6 moths. Dry, crisp acidity, integrated alcohol adding creamy texture. Voluptuous body, with incredible acidity balanced with elegant and pure aromatics. Very long, concentrated and intense profile.
