El Mentridano comes from Curro’s family Garnacha vines planted in the village of Méntrida at an elevation of 600 meters above sea level. Located where the Alberche changes course from flowing southeast to the southwest before it eventually joins the Tagus, this is a landscape of sandy, granitic soils, meadows, and holm oaks. Mentridano, therefore, is a more Mediterranean expression of the Gredos. Still, it remains light on its feet under the care of Curro, who initially gained fame for his ethereal wines at Fedellos. Whole clusters and a short maceration of 8 days, then ages in foudres, this is a pale, floral, and precisely structured Garnacha de Gredos where the ripe fruit is supported by a mineral lift and delicate tannins.
