Altolandon |at the Wine Prague 2020
Located in Landete, Cuenca, somewhere between three provinces: Valencia, Cuenca and Teruel.
Altitude is 1100 meters at the highest point. The property has a total of 120 hectares and in the middle of them is built the winery. Altolandon philosophy is make quality wines and therefore quality grapes.
We take care of every single thing that has to do with the vineyard from the time of planting, choosing varieties, feet and the most suitable clones for our climate and each type of soils.Altitude give us the perfect conditions to produce high quality wines to give them a unique and special features in the world. The wine comes from the grape, but the altitude where they grow and terroir where it comes from are essential to the final result. A higher, more and better solar radiation and thus the temperature range is greater. More altitude, more tannins. The altitude provides a cooling effect that increases the rate of acidity due to thermal shocks. Accumulation of aromas and flavors. These climatic conditions mean that during the last months of gestation period of the grape, this makes a slow and prolonged maturation.So they go over sustained, small and with a greater proportion of skins that pulp, essential for red case because in the skins are grain tannins. The wines from these grapes offer a variety of color, depth and breadth of flavors and great complexity on the palate, also become more suitable for aging in barrels, since the higher acidity and proportion of tannins, the greater the possibility to obtain wines.
The grape reaches a high degree of perfection.
Result: wines with their own personality
Altolandon winery will be like one from exhibitors at the stand of Manchuella appelation at the fair Wine Prague 2020.
