Listan Prieto, aka Mission aka Criolla chica aka Pais. The Benje Tinto from Envinante sourced from the DO Ycoden Daute Isora on Tenerife. Opens up very reductive, so be patient with it. Tart red fruit, very savoury and salty, like licking a stone, peppery. Like a northern Rh么ne but in the lack of flesh. Now call me conservative, but this above my threshold. However, very playful and fun, complex as well with a decent lenght and playful.

Bright, funky, cranberry and woody herbs, a touch of Canary Isl salinity. 馃憣馃従

Like gamay. Smoky. Old leaves. Light but with amazing flavor. Deep. Currants and raspberry. Good acidity. Love this!

Light, tart, very mineral and snappy. Smoke, peppercorn, flowers. Very reductive upon opening, needed lots of aeration. Found sulfide/mercaptan component lingering throughout. On a positive it鈥檚 simple, quaffable and cheap, albeit not as exciting as previous wines from Envinate.

The similarities between Nerello Mascalese are abundant. List谩n Negro smells of ash and rocks, tastes of red fruit, and os utterly appealing. Volcanic wines, all day long y鈥檃ll
