The Alicante Bouschet is a French grape variety, made in 1855 by Henri Bouschet in Montpellier. It results from the crossing of Petit Bouschet with Grenache. Now widely ripped for its rustic character, it was very common in the south of France. Worked with small yields, it can express a great originality and a nice tannic power.
Very dark and opulent nose of black pepper, dark cherries, dried herbs, toast. The palate is rich but soft and balanced with aromas of juicy dark berries, chocolate, coffee, herbs and spices. Lovely tannin structure and very long length.
Produced from the Tinta Amarela grape. Parcela Valdemedel faces north, and sits at 500 meters elevation in the village of Alange in the province of Badajoz, Extremadura. The soil here is composed of limestone and the climate is harshly continental with the high elevation playing a major role in the end wine. The grapes are foot-trodden in small plastic tubs, and fermentation begins with wild yeasts, with a short maceration of 8 days. Malolactic fermentation happens spontaneously in used 500 liter French oak barrels, where the wine will stay without racking for 11 months. Parcela Valdemedel is a beautiful vino tinto with notes of black and red fruits, aromatic herbs, and wet-stone minerality, with a freshness and vivacity rarely seen in red wines grown this far south. Only 612 bottles made !
This wine is sourced from a single 30 year old vineyard that is divided into 3 parcels at 800 meters elevation in the Almansa region, around the town of Albacete. The grape is Garnacha Tintorera (or Alicante Bouchet), and the soils are chalky, clay-calcareous. The wine is wild yeast fermented with 50% whole grape clusters in 4500 litre cement vats, with soft pigeage and a short maceration of 7 days; then raised in cement for 8 months. The result is a remarkably fresh wine with earthy dark fruit and spice – a great wine to pair with savoury dishes, like roasted meats, sausages, mushrooms, and rice dishes, like paella or arroz negro. 580 cases produced
This is a juicy, vibrant wine bursting with purple flowers and fruits on the nose and palate. Well integrated oak for some delicate, sappy tannins. Medium weight but full flavour. Great length.
The only single-vineyard bottling at Quintarelli, Cà del Merlo takes its name from the hill that rises beside the family house. It is an explosion of fragrant fruit, while the spices—usually enhanced by the ripassotechnique, typical of Valpolicella—remain more discreet. 55% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Croatina, Sangiovese
