Bodegas Zarate Fontecón Tinto 2020

Pomares began his red wine program in 2009 as a shared project with his friend, Raul Perez. He makes tiny quantities of Espadeiro, Caiño Tinto and Loureiro Tinto, mostly from very old estate plantings that he has fastidiously maintained, plus some new plots for which he has used massale cuttings from his old vines. The Zarate Fontecón Tinto is bright, high-toned, and fresh with low alcohol, and the gentle vinification is employed to try and counter the sometimes rustic nature of these varietals.
