La Locomotora - Grand Reserva 750ml
Locomotora is another joint project between Miguel Angel de Gregorio of the respected Finca Allende and Quim Villa, owner of Villa Vineteca. The original idea was to source the best fruit from single vineyard sites (Pagos) selected for their quality of terroir and age of vines. Originally the grapes were bought in but, the vineyards were subsequently purchased to ensure continuity and integrity. Vinification, bottling and ageing then takes place at Finca Allende. The result is that very pure, elegant and unique wines are produced.
Miguel is a famous winemaker known as the "genius of red wine". Being the director of various projects including Paisajes, he has been delivering superb red wines to all wine lovers. For this Locomotora project, tempranillo is used to produce their wines. It is rich in savoury and low in acidity, which makes the wine easy drinking and suitable for everyone. In addition, it pairs very well with spicy food so it is a very good wine for Asian cuisines like Thai, Korean, Sichuan, etc.
This magnificent Gran Reserva is the perfect example of the best Tempranillo from vineyards
located in the prestigious village of Briones. On the nose it’s an infusion of spices balanced with
a suggestive scent of forest floor and ripe fruit. It shows a good entry, silky mouth-feel, round
tannins and fresh finish.
