Litrona Tempranillo 2020 (1L)
Tempranillo is referred to as Ull de Llebre in Cataluña which means, eye of the hare. Funny enough, Massimo of Partida Creus has eyes but no hair. He and his partner Antonella (yes, they’re Italian) have been making wine in the Baix Penedes region for about 20 years, focusing on native grape varieties and natural wine made without additives of any kind. Put bluntly, they put the ability in drinkability.
Tastes delicious, very "Partida Creus" in style, medium-light bodied, dark berries, a touch of that earth and spice. Washes down far too easily. Totally chillable.
Litrona is a house label from importer Selections de la Viña. "Litrona is our ode to the liter format which we heavily consumed during our college years in Spain, except back then it was liters of beer. Like many of the wines we import, Litrona is focused on drinkability which is why 750ml just wasn’t gonna cut it. Thoughtful farming and minimal intervention winemaking remain the pillars of the brand where native grape varieties from each region are the main protagonist."
