Critical Acclaim

"Dark purple. Seductive cherry and boysenberry aromas are complemented by a sexy floral note. Lush and weighty, with distinct sweetness to its round, jammy blackberry and boysenberry flavors. Finishes fresh and lively, with a spicy component lifting the dark fruit and adding focus. This is one of the best red wine values in the market."
89 Points

"Bodegas Ateca's 2010 Garnacha de Fuego is 100% old-vine (65-85 years of age) Garnacha from the DO of Calatayud. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up aromas of pure black cherries and violets. Dense on the palate and remarkably rich for its humble price, this great value over-delivers big-time. "

Good value. Bold and spicy. Just enough structure. Finish a bit disappointing.

Learn About Garnacha de Fuego

Garnacha de Fuego is produced by Bodegas Ateca. Bodegas Ateca is a joint project between the Gil winery family and the well-known importer, Jorge Ordonez. The bodegas is located in the Calatayud region of northeastern Spain. The majority of the vineyards are grown in highly permeable and healthy soils with a high amount of limestone. The soils are rocky, loose and low in nutrients. The climate in this region varies vastly from day to night, allowing for more balance between acidity and alcohol.

The main varietal here is Garnacha grown from old-vines up to 80-100 years old.
