Tasting Note A fresh Tempranillo with raspberry and some darker fruit tones on the attack. Mellow and ripe yet carrying good acidity and moderate alcohol. Finishing on some fine grained tannins to boost up the structure.
Bodega Finca Venta de Don Quijote is a family run project which has deep roots in old traditions that go back centuries of dedication to the culture and wine growing.
The estate is located in El Toboso overlooking the foothills of the Toledo mountains, in the very heart of Castilla-La Mancha, also known as the gold triangle of viticulture by locals. Given the altitude (for some plots up to 780m) and the cooling influence of the nearby peaks, José saw immediately the potential for vine-growing on the poor calcareous soils of the surrounding hills and so planting began in 1997. Farming has been organic from the start, with the first crop being bottled in 2006.
In the cellar the approach is rather simple, everything is vinified in stainless steel and bottled after a light filtration, in order to gain more aromatic precision. The wines of the Fernando family are some of the best value on our list, honest and effortless but without lacking personality and character.
