Item Description
A blend of primary Listan Negro (aka Mission in California or Pais in Chile) along with 10% Tintilla, this consistent value from the island of Gran Canarias is delicious and original. Peppery, smoky darker cherry aromas lead to a palate of dark fruit with a mineral accent and an underlying, subtlely pungent snap. A great food wine and fantastic value.

Aged 3 months in mostly used American oak barrels. (About one of 8 barrels is new.) The grapes are de-stemmed and cold-soaked for 24 hours before pressing. Vinification in stainless steel tanks, after which the wines are moved to barrels. Less than 4,000 cases produced.

Listan Negro is also a black-skin version of Palomino (Listan Blanco) that is used in the production of the fortified wine Sherry, commonly found throughout the Canary Islands.
About Fronton De Oro
In 1977, D. Antonio Ramírez bought a small piece of land in the hills of La Lechuza (a small town on the island of Gran Canaria) known locally as "El Frontón", where he planted some vegetables and vines for the family's needs. In 1999 his two sons, Pedro and Antonio, decided to bottle some wine to sell locally. The vineyards are high-elevation– many above 1,000 meters– and in many cases on terraced slopes.
