Migan Tinto Envinate 2021
Migan Tinto is a red wine from pure Listan Negro grapes grown in the Orotava Valley in Tenerife. The soils are volcanic and are quite deep, fiery red in colour and rich in clay with underlying parent rock formed by black basalt.
Natural fermentation is carried out in open cement tanks with a capacity of 63 hectolitres. The duration of fermentation and the percentage of stems are variable depending on the parcels (12 to 35 days and 25 to 100 %).
Maturation of this wine lasts approximately 12 months in cement vats (40% of the mass) and the rest in neutral 500 and 600 litre wooden barrels in contact with the fine lees. Few sulphites are added only at bottling.
Migan Tinto has all the characteristics to be considered a volcanic mountain wine: vibrant, with fine tannins, smoky notes and refreshing acidity.
Envinate - Tenerife
Envinate are 4 heads and 8 hands, those of Laura Ramos, Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente and José Martinez. But they are also 3 distinct projects that arise in as many incredible and dreamlike Spanish viticultural archaeo-sites of exceptional charm and suggestion: the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, the Amandi sub-region of the Ribeira Sacra in Galicia and the Almansa-Manchuela area in the extreme southeast of Castilla-León.
Each of these gives rise to different wines, strongly characterful and to say the least singular, with marked distinctive features that only Nature could paint so perfectly. The snapshots of these vineyards are in fact paintings
to be enjoyed in prolonged vision, they are images of still life, artifacts of primitive authors, lean and dense at the same time as are the wines that embody the place, projecting it beyond what it represents. Precise composition of vertiginous slopes, via ferratas, canyons, stacks, desert, volcanoes, fissured rocks, suspended lands and very ancient farming systems that seem to dance, crawling and flirting with the earth and the sky, then disappearing underground. The four friends met at the University of Alicante, became winemakers – undoubtedly shaped by the beauty of the lands they work – are now an extraordinary ensemble that works in synergy with the peasant populations and local cultures and that we offer you in these few pages.
