Bodegas Breca Garnacha de Fuego Old Vines 2013
The grapes come from old vines vineyards, 60-80 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level, around Calatayud. The vineyards are planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. Even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year), the clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry grown.
Wine SpectatorThis plush red delivers rich, mouthfilling flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and espresso, with light tannins and gentle acidity. Generous, but a bit formless. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.
