Winemaker Notes

Red Garnet middle layer and purple trim. Nose of intense fragrance of red fruits with predominance of strawberry and floral notes of violets followed by spicy notes, highlighting black pepper and licorice. The palate is elegant with fresh input and prevalence of pepper on background of ripe fruit, strawberry and cherry. Balance between crisp acidity and a firm but well polished tannins confer friendly and remarkable length and depth.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Bobal deSanjuan (red) was harvested from September 27, picked from organically grown vines. The nose is well defined with pressed flowers, crushed stone and a touch of balsamic. The palate is fresh and natural with good acidity, hints of mulberry and briary fruit with a very cool, Rhone-like finish that is pure and focused. This is a bright, breezy Bobal that is very well made. Drink now-2017.

Bobal de San Juan, Spain
2011 Tinto
The fifth generation of the family Valsangiacomo with Bruno Murciano, Jean Marc Lafage and Modesto Frances were challenged to create a wine that would express the typical characteristics of Bobal to the international markets.

To achieve this it was vital to have the involvement and cooperation of the growers in the village of San Juan (Utiel-Requena) Bobal the people who breathe on all sides.

San Juan is in the Utiel-Requena region, known as the Valencian plateau, situated 80 km from the Mediterranean coast. Agricultural lands possess an altitude ranging from 580 m in the lower part of 700 m in the upper reaches.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
