Venta Morales Tempranillo 2009
Venta Morales is the new estate of Rafael Canizares. His work in eastern La Mancha has produced clearly some the highest quality wines not just from La Mancha but from all of Spain. He's identified La Mancha's best vineyards and has done a lot of work isolating the oldest vines and working with the best clones of Tempranillo.
This is an estate driven by value and the sole wine of the estate Venta Morales is one of our best. The Mediterranean climate and poor soils of sand, limestone and slate yield a particularly rich Tempranillo. In addition some of the vines are 40 to 50 years old which give natural, lower yields yielding even more complexity.
