Young and wild
BODEGAS CORUÑA DEL CONDE
Bodegas Coruña del Conde wines are young, fresh and very fruity. They are made only with grapes from our youngest vines. They can be composed of Tempranillo, Carbernet, Merlot, Syrah, Grenache, Albillo depending on the vintage and are vinified with the least possible intervention to make pure, simple wines. Alcoholic fermentation happens out in stainless steel vats where the wine rests for a few months until bottling. They are then laid down for a few weeks in our bottle dormitories before being marketed
Powerful and surprising
I’M NATURAL DON‘T PANIC
I’m Natural Don’t Panic wines are long macerations where freshness combines with a lot of body and intensity. They are made with grapes from our century-old vines. Tempranillo for the reds and rosés, Albillo mayor for the whites plus a limited edition of Airen from the vineyards of our friend Samuel Cano de Mota del Cuervo (Castilla La Mancha) and for the orange wines a blend of five of our grape varieties: Albillo mayor, Garnacha blanca, Chasselas, Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay. Depending on the vintage they will be either de-stemmed or undergo carbonic or semi carbonic maceration, but always long macerations lasting from 30 to 120 days. They are all produced in fibreglass vats where the wines stay for a year until they are bottled. The bottles are then laid down for 6 to 12 months in our bottle dormitories before being marketed.
Fresh and rebellious
BCDC wines are short macerations of less than 20 days. They are made from the vines planted by my grandfather in 1970. Depending on the vintage, they will be destemmed, or undergo carbonic or semi carbonic maceration, etc. The wine is made in stainless steel vats where it spends a few months. It is then moved to 500L old French oak barrels for 5 months and before bottling. The bottles are then laid down for 6 months in the bottle in our dormitories before being marketed.
Tender and sentimental
EL NIETO DE ALBERTO
El Nieto de Alberto wines are warm and rounded with a light, elegant touch of French oak and are made with 90% Tempranillo and 10% Albillo mayor from our century-old vines. They are vatted together, destemmed and macerated during the alcoholic fermentation in fibreglass vats. The malolactic fermentation is carried out partly in stainless steel vats and the rest in barrels. Finally the wines spend some 9 months in old French oak barrels until they are bottled. They are then laid down for an average of 6 to 12 months in our bottle dormitories before being marketed.
Character and singularity
VAL DE CID
Val de Cid wines are made with grapes from two of our plots located in the Cid Valley, and are composed of a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Certain vintages also contain a little Albillo mayor. These old vineyards are surrounded by particular vegetation and their very varied soils give grapes with a specific identity. The grapes are destemmed and macerated during alcoholic fermentation. All varieties are placed in the same vat where they rest for a few months until the malolactic fermentation is completed during the summer. They then mature and rest for 16 to 24 months in old oak barrels. Once bottled, the wines spend an average of one or two years in our bottle dormitories before being marketed.
ALBERTO LÓPEZ CALVO
Alberto López Calvo wines have great ageing potential. They are full, silky and their round tannins perfectly combine fruit and wood, both in the mouth and on the nose. They are the result of a blend of three grape varieties: Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Each grape variety is vatted separately, de-stemmed and macerated throughout the alcoholic fermentation, which happens in fibreglass vats. The three grape varieties are blended in the same vat during the winter. In the spring the wine is moved into French oak barrels (about fifteen years old) where the malolactic fermentation is completed during the summer. Depending on the vintage, the wines spend mature between 24 and 42 months. Once bottled, they are laid down for 2 to 4 years in our bottle dormitories before being marketed.
