Cien Y Pico Doble Pasta
Cien y Pico are four Winemakers on a quest to save the extraordinary, hundred & something year old Garnacha Tintorera and Bobal vines of Mancheula and La Mancha. To protect and preserve these 19th Century vineyards and their biodiversity for future generations.
The combination of hand tending and vine age ensures balance, purity and a concentrated yield of fruit. These ancient, gnarled, free-standing bush vines grown on their own roots with just 300mm of rain a year, yield tiny but intense crops of deep colour. Nothing is forced.
Richard Hemming wrote: "...Beautifully peppery nose - this out-Syrah's Syrah! Fine tannins, squid ink and aniseed. That is a beautiful wine - as good now as it was ten vintages ago. The tannins could use a bit of age, but the fruit will keep you very happy!..."
