(Montsant, Spain) Lectores Vini - La Selección 2018
Red-fruited Grenache/ Carignan blend. Very pure fruit, no oak, lovely bit of spice and floral notes. Medium bodied, juicy! Lectores Vini is a collaborative project between Fredi Torres and Marc Lecha, seeking to showcase pure expressions of the Montsant region along with Priorat and Conca de Barbera, all located in Catalunya.
(Navarra, Spain) Azul Y Garanza - Tres Tinto 2018
Tempranillo/ Grenache blend from a desert region in Northern Spain. Unoaked, spicy, very expressive aromatic, very immediate wine, very gluggable. Made by Maria, Dani, and Fernando, a dynamic trio who slowly converted an abandoned cooperative building in their village of Carcastillo to a fully operational winery. A huge commitment to biodiversity in the vines leads to wines of pronounced purity.
(Tuscany, Italy) Fattoria di Sammontana - Sangiovese 2018
A very crisp and pure Sangiovese from Tuscany. Lovely bright fruit and great energy. Medium bodied at most, but structured & dry. Fantastic with food in particular. Made by Daniele & Dario, the fourth generation at this Tuscan estate. Within the range they make a balanced mix of traditional Sangioveses along with experimental wines vinified in clay amphoras (see the orange wine section).
