Care Finca Bancales 2011
The bodega is a result of careful and meticulous planning. The winery begins from an innovative project where each of its essential elements has been verified. From the choice of de vineyard, exclusively based on the quality of the fruit, to the state of the art equipment and a superb infrastructure for a perfect vinification, control and ageing, the whole process has been designed fusing the respect of vineyard., the grape and therefore resulting in a modern and ground-breaking wine.
Care, the Bodegas Anadas brand, is the ancient name used by the Romans to refer to the town of Carinena, which then became Caraellana, "the dear plain". This etymology refers to our roots and our love for the land. In the English-speaking world, it also refers to the care we take and the respect we show in making all our wines. With our roots in tradition, we are now oriented towards a new kind of consumer. So, our brand image takes the form of faces, the original work of the artist Enrique Torrijos. An artistic image inspired in primitive art that brings together various ideas and a universally identifiable term, CARE, blend concepts in unique, innovative wines.
This northeastern Spanish town is believed to be the origin of the grape with the same name. However, Carinena (in French, known as Carignan) has all but been abandoned in favor of Garnacha, which is better suited for its arid climate. The region of Carinena also produces fine examples of whites based on Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Parellada and others.
Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
