Daniel Gómez Jiménez-Landi Las Uvas de la Ira Garnacha
Las Uvas De La Ira (The Grapes of Wrath) is Dani Landi’s village-style blend of Garnachas from several vineyards that sit 900 metres above sea level. The fruit comes from biodynamically grown, hand-tended 60-year-old vines on sandy soils (granite) in the Sierra de Gredos. The wine is made in the same way, with the same care, as Landi's 1er crus. Partial whole bunch, fermented using natural yeast and aged for 12 months in foudre.
The wine style is bright and juicy, showing vibrant red fruit on the nose and palate.
Initial flinty aromas with fresh wild raspberries and strawberries. This has real depth and purpose. The palate delivers a deep and focused core of ripe red-cherry and berry flavors. Impressive depth and detail. Effortlessly powerful!

The 2016 Las Uvas de la Ira follows the line started with 2015, but the year was already quite balanced and allowed for a more traditional vinification, with great complexity, length and potential. This is perhaps more complex and mineral than the 2017, showing more depth and aging potential, with chalky minerality on the palate. I also tasted the 2015 for comparison and the wine is remarkable in that it doesn't show any heat and is evolving very slowly.
