2018 Gamonal

Bodega y Viñedos Pardevalles

Prieto Picudo is a unique variety in all the world, grown exclusively in the southern part of León in the North of Spain. It can easily be distinguished by its grape clusters which are dense and tightly-packed. The grapes are small, in the shape of pine nuts, with a thick skin and a very dark colour.

    Tasting Notes

    An intense dark cherry red colour, with garnet undertones. An aroma of ripe red fruit blended with toasted notes from the barrel and smooth hues of liquorice which are characteristic of the variety. Potent, fresh, varietal. The bitter notes of the tannins merge perfectly with the fruit, resulting in rich fleshy sensations and an excellent aftertaste.

    León (ES), Spain

    For hundreds of years the Alonso family has been tending the vineyards outside the village of Valdevimbre, just south of León in northwestern Spain. Any time you see a wine made from Albarín, a little-known and nearly extinct white grape, you have them to thank. It was Pardevalles who rescued this ancient grape from the brink of extinction!

    Today, Hugo, Rafa, Victor and Andres, the grandchildren of the winery’s founder Jose Rafael Alonso, are at the helm of Pardevalles. These third-generation winemakers champion native grape varieties and sustainable viticulture while staying true to the centuries of winemaking tradition that runs in their family. Prieto Picudo and Albarín Blanco, a red and white variety respectively that are native to this part of Spain, are the only two grape varieties that the Alonso family grows.
