Cien Y Pico Doble Pasta 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This exciting new producer is based in Manchuela, a small region in southeastern Spain. The name means ‘Hundred and something’, and refers to the age of the ancient Garnacha Tintorera vines from which the wines are made. The project is the result of many years of experience in the region, and the personal quest of four winemakers (Australian Zar Brooks, his Bulgarian wife Elena Golakova Brooks, Spaniard Luis Juminez Garcia and Italian Nicola Tucci) to protect and preserve the 19th century vineyards they found in Manchuela.This fantastic wine is incredibly concentrated and rich in flavour. The colour is deep, dark red, while aromas of plum, spice and oak lifting off the nose. On the palate it is fantastically meaty and ripe with an extraordinary creaminess. All in all a fantastic wine, and at this price an absolute bargain!

Enticing with a little coffee bean edge on the nose, it's a deep, quite powerful wine, full, intense black-fruit medley on the finish. High alcohol. While richly fruity upfront the lingering finish is dry with a lovely mineral textural quality http://www.spittoon.biz/three_obscure_spanish_wines.html
