Winemaker's Notes:

Attractive, bright yellow color with greenish hues. The wine has a surprisingly fresh perfume of white flowers and orange blossoms with citric notes. Its flavor is rich and mouth filling with notes of ripe stone fruit and traces of minerality. The finish is rich, ripe and very pleasant.
My Notes:

About Volteo:

Volteo, also known as Vaulting, is a equestrian discipline described as gymnastics performed on the back of a moving horse in a circle. It is an art that requires the skill of a gymnast, the strength of a sport man and the balance, coordination and gentleness of an acrobatic dancer. The teamwork to obtain a perfect integration of the horse and the vaulter is also key.

With a history extending back to Roman sports it flourished in the Renaissance when it was considered an exercise for knights and noblemen, and also used as a symbol of status.

Volteo is located in the Tierra de Castilla region of central Spain. Noted for its hot, arid plains, there are 600,000 hectares of vineyards in this area, representing nearly 6% of the world's vineyards.
