Listán Negro

2017

100% Listán Negro aged 5 months in French oak from the Allier forest. The more structured and concentrated sibling of the more fruit-forward, easy-going Maceracion Carbonica Listán Negro cuvée.

"...a deep, complex and youthful red wine that shows excellent promise, but could do with just a bit of bottle age. The promising nose offers up scents of black cherries, sweet dark berries, a bit of road tar, superbly complex minerality, coffee grounds, cigar smoke and a lovely topnote of botanicals. On the palate the wine is very pure, full-bodied and transparent, with a sweet core of black fruit, gentle tannins and a very long, balanced and still fairly primary finish. This is not unapproachable today, but it is still a puppy and it deserves at least a modicum of time in the cellar to completely blossom."
