Frontonio 2019 Supersonico Garnacha (Valdejalon)
This selection hails from a single, windy vineyard of old vines at 1000 meters elevation. The addition of some stems adds structure to the expected berry purity. It was aged briefly in 2500 l. foudres and some used 300 liter French barriques. Wild and suave at the same time, this offers another window into the miracle of Valdejalón Garnacha.
