Filon Real Garnacha 2011
Saturated ruby. Powerful scents of fresh dark berries, cola, flowers and smoky minerals. Broad and chewy, with sweet dark fruit and candied floral flavors and an intense spicy overtone. Dusty tannins add grip to the long, sappy finish, which features notes of bitter chocolate and licorice.
The winery is located in Villarroya de la Sierra, one of the highest areas of the DO made of Paleolithic materials, mainly quartzite and slate. In addition the soils have the organic content to provide sufficient nutrients to the plant with proper aeration. The climate offers little rain and large temperature fluctuations between day and night.
The grapes for Filon come from vineyards with vines 30-40 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level at the north zone of Calatayud appellation.
