Cuatro del Cuatro

2016

This wine is a tribute to Antonio Sanz, the father of the three brothers running the winery today. It comes from a 40 year old vineyards in Ombatillo, Corella, planted with Graciano. The wine ferments spontaneously in 500  liter French, oak barrels. Malolactic and elevage happen for 12 months in 2-year old 300 liter barrels. It is the highest expression of Graciano we’ve encountered in the region. Limited availability.

"The more powerful Graciano 2016 Cuatro del Cuatro was produced with grapes from their vineyard in Corella, a slightly warmer zone of Navarra where they grape ripens nicely. They did a selection of grapes from the same grapes used for the regular Graciano, and then they do a selection of the best barrels to do some 3,000 bottles. It's floral, spicy, super aromatic and elegant and the palate revealed a more serious profile, with some austerity, focused and clean flavors and a clean, long and dry finish. Very impressive. It has the balance and stuffing to develop nicely in bottle. Bravo!"
