Details for Agrícola de Cadalso Garnacha 2017
Bottle size and vintage
This magnificent single-variety Grenache wine is the result of a collaboration between the Comando G winemaking team and the Cooperativa Agrícola de Cadalso to recover old abandoned vineyards and give new life to the cooperative which, although it has a long history (founded in 1956), had not been doing so well when they started this project.
But, in fact, this Grenache from the Cooperativa Agrícola de Cadalso is clear proof that cooperatives can produce top quality wines. It is a single-variety wine from the heights of the Sierra de Gredos mountains offering not just the character of Madrid wines, but also the unmistakable profile of Grenache wines. And all this at a very affordable price.
A pale red wine with an intense mineral character, its aromas of red fruits of the forest mix with notes of scrubland in the nose. It has mature tannins and is easy to drink, with a taste embellished by aromas of plums and charcoal giving it a delicate and personal character. The finished wine retains a slight sparkling trace from its fermentation which, alongside its wild acidity, means that even though it has an alcohol content of 14%, it is by no means an aggressive drink. The aromas of its crispy fruit remain intact thanks, in part, to the vinification carried out in concrete tanks. A cool sensation of stones and dust wrap around the fruit providing elegance, and adding complexity and a degree of nobleness to this small but great Madrid wine.

Buena recomendación para un vino de su precio, sabor medio intenso y agradable al olfato. Lo volveré a consumir y comprarby: Nacho (16/10/2018) - Vintage 2015
buen vino que necesita reposar en la copa
vino interesante de colar claro dada su maduración en hormigón que necesita oxigenarse unos minutos en la copa para apreciar todos los sabores.
