Frontonio 2021 El Casetero Garnacha ORGANIC
Just to the northwest of Valdejalón, and enjoying a similar climate and topography, strongly influenced by the cold, north-eastern cierzo winds, this IGP styles itself the “Empire of Garnacha”. With good reason! We were frankly stunned by the price-quality ratio of this entry-level wine. Produced from dry-farmed, head-pruned vines and fermented with indigenous yeasts, this shows the ripe, plummy and spicy side of the grape, with good freshness and length. It is dangerously grapy and gulpable in the new vintage.
