Fuerza Bruta, meaning “Brute Force,” is a remarkable expression of the rugged beauty of the Aldea del Fresno vineyards in Madrid. Crafted from 60-year-old Garnacha vines grown organically in the Alberche river valley, nestled amidst granite alluviums and the majestic Sierra de Gredos. Fuerza Bruta showcases the winemaker’s dedication to authenticity and tradition, as it is made entirely with stems, undergoes spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, and enjoys a generous 40-45 day maceration period. Aged for 12 months in large chestnut barrels and French oak foudres, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation, all without clarifying or filtering. Fuerza Bruta is a powerful, unapologetic wine that reflects the raw intensity of its origins, with bold fruit notes, a robust structure, and a hint of earthiness. Pair it with hearty dishes like slow-cooked lamb stew or grilled ribeye steak to matches its unyielding character.
