Mustiguillo Quincha Corral ECO 2019 14.5% vol. 1.5L

Grape variety:
100% Bobal

At 800 meters above sea level, on the gentle hills that were once the seabed of the Mediterranean and under the shelter of the Sierra del Negrete (Utiel), a unique landscape opens up to the eye. An environment where pines, holm oaks and olive trees join the aromatic notes of thyme, rosemary and fennel that dot the valley and combine to wrap the fruit of the vineyards of the Sarrión-Martínez family, la Bobal. A strong grape that, withstanding extreme climates and apparently infertile limestone soils, cultivated through natural and pioneering processes in the area, offers a fruit full of nuances, elegant and delicate. A grape expression of the soil, the climate, the aromas of the mountains and the proximity of the sea that, together, give the wine its unique Mediterranean character.

Tasting notes

Dark cherry colored wine with violet reflections. Intense nose, with notes of black fruit. Spicy touches such as thyme or burlap. On the palate, friendly entrance with a lot of body. Elegant and structured. Very long and fresh finish.
