Deep red. Complex in nose with aromas of ripe dark berries, spicy, and some balsamic aromas. On the palate with a lot of structure, silky tannin and again lots of fruit, chocolate, liquorice. Long and persistent finish.
Very powerful and with a long life ahead.
VINEYARD The vineyards of Garnacha tintorera for Quinta del 67, are located around Alpera, certificated by the DO Almansa. Planted between 1970 and 1980 in vaso system and with no irrigation, giving a yield from 2 to 3kg per vine. Soils are sandy, poor and intermixed with rocks of pure lime.
The combination of the soil profile and the altitude in a range between 850m-900m above sea level, give this region a very unique terroir.
A severe weather, arid and continental climate, with cold winters that receive snow. During the summer, the temperature fluctuates drastically between day and night due to the altitude. Vines are hand-harvested at the beginning of October.
The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel and it is aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months. Quinta del 67 is unfiltered bottled in the estate. The production of the 2017 vintage will be 25.000 bottles.
This wine is a new project of Rafael Cañizares, who wants to pay homageto his generation.
About Bodegas Volver
The project of Bodegas Volver was founded in 2004 by Rafael Cañizares, enologist through studies and viticulturist through his family tradition of four generations bound to the vine and wine.
The pillars of the bodega are based on the repositioning of quality Spanish wines and recovering old indigenous vineyards which, either through low production or lack of generational succession, had been lost.
