Xiloca Calatayud Garnacha
Xiloca Calatayud Garnacha – the work begun by Vinae Murari along the upper stretches of the JilocaRiver has been inherited through acquisition by Bodegas Sommos Garnacha. The tastefully designed, isolated bodega in Murero is retained, along with 250 acres of indigenous Garnacha vines between 40 and 100 years old. Updated technology and attention to detail have produced immediate and spectacular results.
From the highlands that overlook Calatayud, with vineyard elevations between 2600 and 4000 ft. The vineyards of predominantly exposed blue and black slate are farmed using sustainable organic methods.
Fruit for the Xiloca bottling is sourced from the estate’s lower elevation pagos along the Jiloca river where a higher percentage of red clay accentuates a ripe fruit profile in the wine. Fermented and bottled from stainless steel tanks.
