The 2010 El Carretil is produced with Tempranillo grapes from a single 5.3-hectare, southeast-facing vineyard planted in 1973 in Laguardia at 500 meters altitude. The grapes fermented in open wooden vats and carried out the malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, where it aged for 14 months. This vineyard was, in the 2001 vintage, the source for Grandes Anadas. The southeast orientation makes the influence of the sun not as strong as in La Poza, nor as light as in Valdegines. I found the 2010 very ripe, with notes of damsons, black cherries and black spices, while the palate showed more delineation and freshness, coming back with a mixture of red and black fruit flavors. This is also a big, powerful but balanced wine, with fine-grained tannins, and a chalky sensation, which provide some austerity. It is a beautiful wine. Drink 2014-2024.
