Tasting notes: El Carretil is a vineyard that imparts strength and balance. It is planted in poor calcareous clay soils with high levels of active limestone. The wine is mouthfilling, with pronounced, precise minerality and well-sculpted fibrous tannins. Deep and complex. Clean fruit on the brightly textured finish. A very dynamic wine.
