Tasting Notes
This wine is bold and sinewy, and has a remarkable complexity. Pristine hints of blackcurrants, graphite, lavender and violets, alongisde remembrances of earth and turf, notions of aromatic herbs and underbrush over a toasted and spicy background. Long, complex finish with a balsamic and earthy tang

A Glass of Facts

Malpuesto is a limited-production, monovarietal Tempranillo red wine from a single old vineyard that gives the wine its name. Planted in 1931, on soft slopes in glass, on sandy soils, very poor, with little water retention, at 520 meters of altitude and with very poor configuration, hence its name. Its strains have very low yields and a very special character.
