Care Finca Bancales 2011
Located in the heart of the Cariñena Denomination of Origin, one of the historical and emerging areas of national viticulture, Bodegas Care was born as an exclusive, advanced and committed wine business.
The winery and the creation of our wines were conceived as a complete and innovative process in which each and every one of the elements is meticulously contrasted. From the selection of the vineyard, where sourcing the best quality grapes is our main goal, to the infrastructure of the different production, control and aging areas.
Our wine business responds to a fusion criterion between the tradition of one of the most deeply-rooted wine regions in Spain and the respect to the vine and a wine towards new lifestyles around the world.
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.
