"Bottled unfiltered for the USA market, the 2001 Allende exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of figs, black currants, blackberries, cigar box, and smoky vanilla. Full-bodied, rich, and opulent, with great purity, density, and length, it should be consumed over the next 6-7 years."-Wine Advocate
Records from 1672 prove that the De Gregorio family has been involved in viticulture and winemaking for several centuries. Miguel Angel de Gregorio, owner and winemaker, graduated from the University of Madrid with degrees in Agricultural Engineering and Enology. The family's estate of 60 acres (25 ha) is in Briones. The vineyards are 1,440 to 1,680 ft. in elevation (480-560m). The vines are planted in calcareous clay and gravel which dates from the quaternary period, located on the 2nd and 3rd terraces of the Ebro River.
The dual expositions of the vineyards result in two distinct microclimates. The vineyards that face north-northwest produce grapes that are higher in acidity and give structure to the wine. The vineyards that face south-southeast produce grapes with ripe fruit aromas.
"The 2001 Allende has a more complex bouquet than the 2000 with briary, dill, orange zest and a touch of limestone that is beautifully composed. The palate is very well-balanced, with juicy dark berry fruit laced with black pepper and balsamic with fine concentration towards the masculine finish. This is probably the finest Allende – up to this point! "
