“Daniel Landi produces racy wines, perfectly textured and ultimately delicious."
The soils in Castilla-La Mancha are very homogenous throughout the region and tends to be flat. This wine region represents a vast expanse - the central Iberian plateau. The soils are based on red sandy clay, rich in limestone and chalk, but poor in organic material. The best vineyards are those with the highest limestone and chalk content in the sub-soil.
A Passionate Lineage
Daniel Landi is an eponymous estate created in 2012. After making his name with Bodegas Jiménez Landi, Daniel Landi left his cousin to produces its own wines. Vineyards are his family’s inheritance as well as a few sites that he had purchased or leased himself. Uvas de la Ira (the Grapes of Wrath), which is his new “village” wine comes from some of the best plots of old vines from the region. A combination of whole bunch, large old oak barrels, and minimal extraction from pressing produce a beautiful elegant wine. Garnacha is Daniel's favourite grape variety but Uvas de la Ira Blanco is a wonderful Albillo-based white wine.
