The 2015 Malleolus de Valderramiro felt riper and headier when tasted next to the 2015 Malleolus de Sancho Martín, which is always the case, since this vineyard always achieves higher ripeness. It's their oldest vineyard (planted in 1924) on clay soils that produces powerful and tannic wines. It's the oakiest of all the wines I tasted from their portfolio, with intense spice, toast and sawdust aromas, dominated by oak aromas and flavors. There are plenty of tannins and flavors derived from the élevage. For fans of ripe, powerful and oaky Tempranillo. 7,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2018.
