Sierra Cantabria Mágico
Def. Having qualities that make it very attractive and captivating, as it is extraordinary within its genre.
The wine world is one of sensations and emotions that sweep us away to other places. As Riojans, we are always seeking genuine and pure wines that express their origins, landscape, culture, tradition, ancestors, family and personal experiences.In this wine, Sierra Cantabria Mágico, all these qualities come together.
Sierra Cantabria Mágico proceeds from a small vineyard: El Vardallo (also known as Las Sepulturas) measuring 1.18 hectares, located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
It is a vineyard sown and grafted after and spared from the phylloxera crisis at the beginning of the 20th century, with a wide range of varieties, both red and white. Among the reds there is 65% Tempranillo, 20% Grenache, 2.5% Graciano, 1% Petit Bouschet and 1.1%, others; among the white varieties is 4.4% Calagraño, 3.2% Turruntés (Rioja) and 2.8% Viura (Macabeo).
In 2010, an exceptional year, working right in the vineyard, we speculated that, perhaps by processing all the varieties together we could produce a wine boasting a truly extraordinary expression, one that would thrill us as much as the area in which its grapes are grown. And, indeed, this first 2010 vintage was truly remarkable.
