"El Marciano" from Alfredo Maestro is crazy good! Rock Star "Natural" winemaker practicing organic in Ribero del Duero. This exciting cuvée of 100% Garnacha comes from a single plot (in the village of Navarredondilla) of old vines ranging in age from 50 to 90 years planted in decomposed granite. The nose exhibits a sexy expression of Garnacha, with perfumed aromas of cherry and rosemary. Aromatic, earthy and nice purple fruit with flavors of silky pomegranate juice and red currants. A simply delicious and balanced red wine. Dry, low tannins and no sulfur added.
The mountain range in Castilla y Leon north of Madrid, Gredos has an allure of interest regarding folklore alien sightings that make the "blood of the grape" journey even more enticing, mysterious and intriguing.
