Winemaker's Notes:

The Jimenez Landi Sottorrondero is known as a Vino de Pueblo (village wine) as it shows the purest expression of the village from which it comes from. This wine is sourced from 5 small vineyards consisting of Grenache from 70+ Year Old vines and 10 Year Old Syrah vines, farmed according to the principles of organic agriculture.

Blend: 85% Syrah, 15% Garnacha Blend: 85% Syrah, 15% Garnacha

About Bodegas Jimenez Landi:

José Benavides Jiménez-Landi and Daniel Gómez Jiménez-Landi were raised among concrete tanks and old press machines. At the age of 27 they both decided to dedicate their lives exclusively to wine, and in 2004 they restored the old winery introducing new technologies and machinery with the single target of producing maximum possible quality, based in respect to environment and tradition.

The small estate is located in Méntrida and is in an old typical Toledana house where the oldest part, the cave, dates to the 16th century and was used by their ancestors to elaborate wine in clay vats. With romantic 16th century gardens, the estate has always been linked to the family, and the family always linked to winemaking and viticulture.
