Notes from Benchmark Wine:
"A family winery pioneering Garnacha-driven reds in DO Méntrida (Central Spain), Jiménez-Landi tend 20Ha of their own plus 5Ha of rented vineyards. Vines are located on the pasture, scrubland landscape of Méntrida, the village in the lower part of the region, and the rugged hills of El Real de San Vicente, the only village in the appellation within the boundaries of the Gredos mountains. Vines are planted at 550-650m on the plain and at 750-850m on the mountains. Sandy granitic soils are dominant in both areas.
Wines are made in the estate’s ancient 16th century manor house. The old cave where large earthenware jars were kept is now used as bottle storage. The estate nowadays draws on the sweeping changes started in 2004 by cousins José and Dani Jiménez-Landi (Comando G, Dani Landi Viticultor) when they started producing terroir-driven Garnacha wines -a style that José has since continued on his own."
