Bottle size and vintage
The making of a wine which seeks to be the winery's best always arouses great respect and denotes a great responsibility. Ataulfos is Jiménez-Landi's superior wine, made from old Garnachas grown in their finest parcel, a vineyard of just 1.5 hectares planted with bush vines facing westwards, at an altitude of 830 metres on silica-sand soils of former granite.
