This exciting new producer is based in Manchuela, a small region in south-eastern Spain. The name Cien y Pico means "Hundred and something" and refers to the age of the ancient Garnacha Tintorera and Bobal vines from which these wines are made.
Cien y Pico `Doble Pasta` is made using the ‘doble pasta’ method, whereby the crushed grapes are fermented over additional grape skins and pulp, to obtain a high extract, colour and tannin. Fermentation took place in small open vats on the skins for 10 days before just 20% was aged in new Radoux oak barrels for 19 months. Doble Pasta was bottled under screwcap in December 2011.
Cien y Pico `Doble Pasta` is a deep purple in colour with youthful violet tints. On the nose a fantastic range of blueberries, black plums and cherries mixes with touches of fresh bay leaf, lavender and a hint of rose petal. On the palate red fruits such as raspberries and loganberries combine with darker hints of juicy blackberries and herbal notes. Dark cocoa notes and a layer of savoury meatiness appear later. Rich and full-bodied, with smooth tannins, good levels of natural acidity and a long, presistent, perfumed finish.
