Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Intense dark color with purple hues. On the nose, a fantastic range of blueberries, plums and cherries. Also, there are intriguing smells of fresh bay leaf, lavender and Turkish Delight. The palate is intensely fresh, with macerated blueberry and red fruits, followed by juicy blackberries, delicious strawberries, tart raspberries, and underlying hints of freshly muddled herbs. There is also some significant tannin as well as strong dark cocoa dominating a long and persistent finish.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: Manchuela, Spain V.C.P.R.D. Vineyard: In Mahora, Dry grown, 100+year old, centurion bush vine. Soil type: Limestone rich, red, sandy Miocene era sedimentary clay. Yield: 3.3 tonnes per hectare.
Production Notes
The fermentation takes place in open vats with skin contact for 10 days. After that, 20% of the wine is left to age in new Radoux barriques for 19 months, while the rest is refined in stainless steel.
Winemaker Notes
Our ancient plantings of [Garnacha] Tintorera thrive in the organically poor but limestone rich, red, sandy Miocene era sedimentary clay between the rocky limestone outcrops that cover the vineyards. Ancient and gnarled, the free standing bush vines, grown on their own roots with just 300mm of rain a year, yield tiny but intense crops. Cien y Pico is nicknamed ‘Doble Pasta’ referring to its deep colour that occurs naturally with the variety [Garnacha] Tintorera.
Food & Wine Pairing
Pairs perfectly with pork meat and cured meats. Also great with tomato based dishes and truffles!
More Information
Nothing is forced at Cien y Pico, which is easy to achieve because all that you could want in the wine is delivered from there en-masse - with chivalrous breed. Cien y Pico does not require verbose explanations, marketing or the unenviable process of over-selling - it is Garnacha Tintorera vinified traditionally with some new French oak. To smell is to see and to taste it is to know.
