The wine

Piélago is pure Garnacha and pure succulence. Uncork the bottle, pour yourself a glass and let it speak for itself. Its complexity abounds with delightfully harmonious contrasts: aromas of fresh flowers juxtaposed with notes of wild mountain herbs, and dried herbs; strawberries, fresh raspberries, water melon, pomegranates... and other red fruits that combine acidity with a compact sweetness, a real lusciousness; notes of damp leaves against subtle smoky hints; earthy nuances on a liquor background... It smells of woods, undergrowth and dry leaves... and of old tomes too. Countless aromas immediately come to the fore, leading us forward to seduction on the palate: direct, refined, very easy to drink but with a marked tannic structure, meatiness and vibrant acidity. A very well-balanced wine, that shows great respect for the environment, reflecting and conveying this most naturally.

Piélago is named after the hill which crowns the vines that Jiménez-Landi uses to make this wine, conceived as a 'village wine', from the village of El Real de San Vicente, in the province of Toledo. A Garnacha which we might describe as mid-way between Atlantic and Mediterranean, a Garnacha with its own character. Authentic, refined, fresh and feminine. A Garnacha to savour and relish, right till the last drop.

The winery

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi is a family-run enterprise which has arisen out of passion for the land and vines, and inherited the tradition both of former generations and also the actual area in which it is located, Méntrida, a town near the Sierra de Gredos mountains whose wine-growing past dates back to the 12th Century. The winery building is set inside an old manor house built in the 16th Century, within which they have managed to preserve a cave where their forebears used to...
