Quintanilla 2018 Artadi
|Conditie||From Original Wooden Case|
I finally tasted the bottled 2018 Quintanilla, from the 1.13-hectare plot planted in 1951 in the village of Elvillar on limestone and sandstone soils. It's balsamic with notes of aromatic herbs, lighter than the 2017 or 2019, with the benefit of a cooler vintage that tames the natural power. It does have the abundant chalky tannins and the long, tasty finish, with balance and elegance. The finest vintage since the debut in 2016. A vineyard that excels in cooler years. 2,800 bottles were filled in June 2020.
