Three friends and winemaking consultants were drawn to the village of Dosbarrios, in the Mesa de Ocana, 60 kilometres east of Toledo. by not only the beauty of the area, but by the potential of the calcerous clay vineyards for the production of fine wines Margarita Madrigal, Gonzalo Rodriguez and Alexandra Schmedes have honed their craft through many years of consultancy work in Spain and have brought this vast knowledge and ability together to produce their own wines and called them Ercavio, after a nearby old Roman settlement. They set about renovating the old property called La Plazuela, which dated back to 1851 and began the regeneration of 15 hectares of prime indigenous varieties such as Cencible (Tempranillo), Garnacha and Arien, along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. The Blanco is made primarily of Arien and a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc. By achieving low yields they are able to obtain ideal fruit for this young, fresh and fruity wine.

  • Ercavio Mas Que Vinos Roble 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Day 1: Muted nose; just a little muted dark fruit coming through. The palate starts off with plain plum and cherry notes, but this wine's finish is its winning characteristic- very rich blackberry, reminds me of Chambord.

  • Ercavio Mas Que Vinos Roble 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I concur wholeheartedly with the previous reviews; a top-notch value from Spain with some complexity that belies price. Good density and rich black fruit on the palate with a good cypress and blackberry nose. Good, medium to long finish. Excellent value. Read More
