|Curro Barreño and Jesús Olivares (founders of Fedellos de Couto in Ribera Sacra) wanted to explore old vines on the granitic slopes of the Gredos Mountains. They are reviving Garnacha, Albillo and Moscadel vineyards (30-80yrs) at high altitude, 700-850mtrs. Winemaking is low-fi and wines are a truly exciting addition to an up and coming region. This, their Albillo reál, is a rare and particular treat. Found only in this part of Spain, Albillo makes textured and rich wines, full of phenolic character and yet retaining bright acidity. Honeyed and complex, and a genuine 'terroir' wine.|
