Condesa de Leganza la Mancha Crianza 2005
In 1994 the Martínez family, owners of Bodegas Faustino, the single largest producer of Reserva and Gran Reserva wines from Spain’s renowned Rioja region, bought the 1,477-acre Finca Los Trenzones estate in the province of La Mancha. Julio Martinez has made it his personal quest to realize the untapped potential of La Mancha wines, with the long-term goal of establishing the wines of La Mancha on the same level as other top-quality wine regions of Spain. To bring his vision to reality, Martinez selected the Finca Los Trenzones property based on its prime vineyard location. Condesa de Leganza Crianza is the first wine to be released from the revitalized Finca Los Trenzones estate. In confirmation of Julio Martinez’s conviction that La Mancha is a land of enormous promise, its introduction sends an unmistakable message that the La Mancha region can indeed produce superb wines.
