A great proponent of international varieties, the marquis of Griñón, owner of the winery, made this Summa Varietalis from a blend composed mainly of Syrah, with tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Unashamedly technical in his approach to winemaking, his winery uses state-of-the-art technology to monitor each and every parameter relating to the soil, the temperature and, particularly, the rain that the grapes receive.
Carefully handpicked, brought to the cellar in small boxes and meticulously destemmed, the grapes underwent a long fermentation-maceration process for almost 5 weeks. Then Summa Varietalis 2012 was put into new and nearly new French oak barrels from Allier, where the wine was aged for 12 months.
This red wine from Pago Dominio de Valdepusa was neither filtered nor clarified before its bottling. Decant 30 minutes before drinking.
