Description

Produced from grapes grown on red sandy-clay soils. Hand-harvesting takes place later than usual for the region in October. The Viña Emilio vineyard yields 4,000 kg/ha of small bunches, each with a high number of thick-skinned berries. Fermentation and maceration take place in concrete tanks.

About the producer

Bruno Murciano, one of the UK’s most well regarded Spanish Sommeliers, with more than 16 years of international experience, is pursuing a lifelong dream to produce a range of wines made from Bobal in his native homeland of Utiel-Requena. Working alongside his brother Jose Luís who looks after the viticulture and winemaking with the initial help of David Sampedro, one of Rioja Alavesa’s 5 th generation of vine growers from an extremely talented winemaking family, they have combined their joint experience and passion to produce an amazing range of Artisan Family wines from high altitude 7 hectares of organically grown vineyards above 900m. Bruno and Jose Luís use artisanal methods and biodynamic techniques, with very little intervention in the cellar, whilst following the lunar biodynamic calendar to achieve the very best results.
