- Other Info:
- Somontano is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) for wines, created in 1984, and located in the county of the same name, in the province of Huesca, (Aragon). It borders the regions of Sobrarbe and Ribagorza in the North, Hoya de Huesca in the West, the Monegros in the South, and the region of Litera in the East. Wine production is centred around the town of Barbastro. The name Somontano, as its Latin roots suggest, means beneath the mountain this perfectly defines this geographic area, which spreads out from the foothills of the Pyrenees down to the Ebro valley. The DO includes 43 municipalities, most of them in the Somontano area, and a few bordering on Ribagorza and the Monegros. There are over 4000 hectares of vines and about 500 individual grape-growers.
Made from ancient bush vines, this is a unique and outstanding wine, quite different from the usual style of Somontano. This wine is produced organically.
Complex, earthy and spicy Garnacha fruit dominates the nose, followed by a rich and dense palate with intense fruit and balancing tannins and a long and powerful finish, enhanced by ageing in French Allier oak for ten months.
- "From vines that are 100 years old mainly, planted far up in the mountains. This is the most unusual and strangely atmospheric vineyard I have seen on all my wine travels" - Theo Sloot, The Oxford Wine Company.
