Malleolus de Sanchomartín 2014
Malleolus de Sanchomartín está elaborado con uvas procedentes del pago de Sanchomartín, majuelo localizado en una ladera que cuenta con viñas de hasta 60 años. Tanto la fermentación maloláctica como la crianza se realizan en barricas nuevas de roble francés. Un vino intenso, rotundo y con un gran potencial de guarda.
Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
The 2014 Malleolus de Sancho Martín is always the more backward of the two single-vineyard bottlings. It is sourced from a small (0.84-hectare) single plot of vines planted in 1964 on chalky soils that provide more austere wines. It fermented with yeasts selected from that same vineyard and it went through malolactic in French barriques, better suited for wines from chalky soils. Like the rest of the top of the range, it matured in French oak barrels for some 18 months before bottling. The limestone soils provide for a more austere profile and it also seems like the wine takes the oak in a different way and feels better integrated. The palate has the chalky mouthfeel of the tannins, dry and serious, not as exuberant as the Valderramiro, but more focused and precise, with a long life ahead of it. 2,500 bottles were filled in November 2016. - Luis Gutiérrez.
Aromas of green olives, roast beef and coffee beans to this red. Full body, soft and velvety tannins and a subtle finish. Very ripe. Beautiful now.
