Between 1945 and 1985
Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Organic Gobelet trained vines. Cultivated completely by hand, with minimal human intervention. The majority of the vineyards receive no treatments whatsoever.
Cambrian-Silurian slate and quartz soils, partially covered by a thin layer of calcareous Mesozoic soil.
Extreme continental, with drastic temperature swings between day and night. Extremely low levels of precipitations. Drought years are not uncommon.
Hand-harvested and stored in small 20 kg boxes. Spontaneous fermentation occurs in stainless steel and concrete tanks.
Briefly aged in stainless steel and concrete tanks to soften tannins.
Garnacha de Fuego is a young, primary fruit expression of the oldest clones of Garnacha in the world, from the high altitude mountains of Calatayud. The altitudes, age of the vines, and slate dominant soils produce a wine of tremendous character and concentration, balanced by fresh acidity that provides balance and drinkability, and elegant minerality.
