Daniel Landi is today one of Spain's pioneers of the new generation of oenologists. Thanks to him, Spanish Grenache has taken on a new definition: that of finesse and elegance. Daniel works with the utmost respect for the terroir and its environment. All plots are worked in biodynamics. His wines are a model of purity and lightness. For lovers of great Burgundy. The famous top wine from Jimenez / Daniel Landi - 100% Grenache produced in an organic way, raised on French oak. 2011 is the first year that winemaker Daniel Landi makes this wine under his own name after having led the Jimenez Landi family domain for 8 years. Daniel Landi is also co-owner of the rising star Comando G. Vitícola Mentridana is the successor of Dani Landi Viticultor. Dani is from Méntrida and went through the same trajectory as his childhood friend Curro. They studied oenology and went to work in small family bodegas. In the end, they each created their own project. For Dani it was Comando G and for Curro it was Fedellos. And now their paths converge again : Dani decided to place all his vineyards from the Méntrida appellation in a separate bodega : Vitícola Mentridana. And Curro is in charge of the daily management and makes the wines, always with the help of Dani.

In the new Vitícola Mentridana project, this Mentridano is a classic Mentrida. Made only from Garnacha grapes from the village of Méntrida, the capital of the appellation of the same name. 100% Garnacha from old vines, biodynamically farmed vineyards. The grapes are fully fermented with full bunches. So there is no decomposition. Obviously no addition of foreign yeasts or enzymes. Non-interventionist élevage of 7 to 8 months on large wooden containers of 3 to 4000 litres. Only addition of sulphite just before bottling.

The El Mentridano has a fresh bright red color in the glass. In the nose an explosion of red fruit, wild strawberries, raspberries and red currants, supplemented with the typical terroir herbs such as rosemary and thyme. Wonderfully fresh but still with power and substance. Not the ethereal style of Comando G, but heavily influenced by it. Very tasty !
