Frontonio
Telescópico

Garnacha 2015

DESCRIPTION

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

TASTING NOTES

Medium garnet with blue hints. Vibrant red cherry and raspberries and minerality. Toasted cedar aromas coming from..2nd year French barrels in which the wine spent 10 months. MLF done in concrete vessels. Dry, fresh acidity, firm soft tannins, multilayered flavours and integrated alcohol. Long length, with spicey complex nose and vivid persistent palate.
