Juanvi is the artisan winemaking project of Juan Vicente Alcañiz, a native of Rubielos De Mora. This cuvée is a blend of 70% Garnacha with 30% Miguel del Arco, an obscure indigenous varietal that bears some resemblance to Syrah. Farmed organically and harvested by hand at high elevation sites, the grapes are whole cluster fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel before a three week maceration and gentle punch-downs, to avoid crushing the berries. The wine ages for nine months, splitting time between French oak and concrete, prior to bottling without fining or filtration. The nose balances brambly red fruit with flowers, herbs, and spice. This full-bodied red delivers ripe, almost jammy red and black berries, with clove, fig and an earthy, leathery note. Its firm, dry tannins pair nicely with a Moroccan-spiced beef brisket or eggplant dumplings alla parmigiana.
