BODEGAS SAN ALEJANDRO it is a cooperative founded in 1962, formed nowadays by 350 associates and 1100 hectares with a total average production of 4.600.000 Kilos. It is located in Miedes, place of the province of Saragossa placed to 88 km from the capital, in the valley of the Perejiles, to 758 m. of altitude and with a population of 530 inhabitants. Belonging to the community of Calatayud from the re-conquest of Alfonso I until 1834. At the centre of its urban neighbourhood rises the church of San Pedro Apóstol made in the mudejar style, which it lies next to the exceptional communal Tower in the gothic style and built using cut-stone masonry. At the beginning of the 17th century, the mudejar-style Convent of the Reverendas Concepcionistas Franciscanas was built, where the remainders of San Alejandro currently remain in honour of whom the main town festivities are held from the 12th to the 16th of May.

Jammy strawberries with a little smoke and tar greet the nose along with hints of candy cane mintiness and some dried bay leaf. This is a fairly large scaled wine, though not super dense or chewy. the alcohol is noticeable in the mouth from front to back lending this a bit of a liquory profile in the mouth though the fruit is nicely red tinged all strawberries and raspberries. The tannins are very soft making this easy to drink, and while the alcohol is noticeable on the finish it doesn’t stick out as much as one might expect. A bit unremarkable in the mouth with jammy fruit on the modest finish, this smells a bit better than it tastes. 84pts
