The Wine Advocate 94
"The more powerful Graciano 2016 Cuatro del Cuatro was produced with grapes from their vineyard in Corella, a slightly warmer zone of Navarra where they grape ripens nicely. They did a selection of grapes from the same grapes used for the regular Graciano, and then they do a selection of the best barrels to do some 3,000 bottles. It's floral, spicy, super aromatic and elegant and the palate revealed a more serious profile, with some austerity, focused and clean flavors and a clean, long and dry finish. Very impressive. It has the balance and stuffing to develop nicely in bottle. Bravo!" ~ LG
This wine is a tribute to Antonio Sanz, the father of the three brothers running the winery today. It comes from a 40 year old vineyards in Ombatillo, Corella, planted with Graciano. The wine ferments spontaneously in 500 liter French, oak barrels. Malolactic and elevage happen for 12 months in 2-year old 300 liter barrels. It is the highest expression of Graciano weve encountered in the region. Limited availability.
