2016 ALBILLO REAL, ‘Ulterior Parcela 7 y 9', Bodegas Verum. Castilla-La Mancha, SpainOrganic
From the Verum website:
"Albillo Real is a grape variety recovered from those that before the phylloxera could be found usually in Castilla-La Mancha and neighboring provinces to the north. A low yielding, short cycle and resistant to drought grape variety, which is one of the first to be harvested in the region. A small percentage of the wine is aged in French oak barrels of 600 liters and the rest, as our ancestors did, in earthenware jars (clay) of 300 arrobas (about 5000 litres)."
In 2005 they created Bodegas y Viñedos Verum. to produce the genuinely interesting and special wines from the best vineyards on their property.
