Product Description

"'La Faraona' is from a single parcel on the highest hill in Corullon, Bierzo, at 855 metres. Very steep, south-east facing, planted to 65 year old vines. Oak and fermentation as per Moncerbal. Unfiltered, with total production of 2 barrels.

Forest strawberry, smoky red fruits and slate on a nose that's dark, deep-set, run through with dried field herbs and lifted by mineral freshness. There's the smell of velvet, brambles and stone, and more brambles and stone. The palate is marked by the most fabulous liquid tannins, and despite a great deal of impact, the wine flows up and out in the mouth, effortless already." Importer's Note

"Ricardo was kind enough to uncork the 2011 La Faraona, their more exclusive wine, of which they only produce 600-900 bottles per vintage depending on the yields and conditions of the year. He opened and decanted the wine a good six hours before we tasted it, as he thinks they really need air. The wine is precise, with notes common to the others (blueberries, acid strawberry, smoky peat), but has some wild herbs, blood orange, more restrained on the exotic and exuberant, and a palate of great precision, balance and harmony. The wine is really different, and has a strong, capricious personality."
