David Sampedro Gil is a biodynamic wine maker in Rioja Alavesa, where he has been farming biodynamically since 1999. Cultivating native varieties, he tends to his vines with the utmost care; replacing tractors for horses and eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. He promotes biodiversity in his vineyard, leaving his plots looking wild and almost overgrown; a rewilding practice, reviving the overworked and chemical polluted soils. His sustainable approach doesn’t stop in the vineyard but extends to his solar powered cellar and winery.
This 100% Tempranillo wine shows intense, dense black fruit and developing aromas of liquorice, clove and a touch of vanilla. Ripe cherry and dark fruits on the palate, firm tannins, crisp acidity and fabulous structure.
