Introducing the 2018 Bodegas Frontonio Supersonico, a truly exceptional wine that will captivate your senses with its elegance and finesse. This red wine, crafted from the Grenache varietal, hails from the renowned Aragon region of Spain, showcasing the best of the terroir and winemaking expertise.

In the glass, the Supersonico flaunts a vibrant red color that reflects its youthful nature. Aromatically, it is simply breathtaking, exuding an intoxicating bouquet of violets that fills the air with its heady fragrance. This wine is reminiscent of the aromatic splendor found in Touriga Nacional, further emphasizing its allure.

On the palate, the Supersonico reveals itself to be a true gem. The grapes for this vintage were sourced from two hectares of old vines in the village of Sestrica, situated at an impressive altitude of approximately 1,030 meters. This high elevation, coupled with the complex soils of slate, granite, and limestone, imparts a unique character to the wine.

To preserve the freshness and vibrancy of the grapes, the winemakers employed meticulous techniques. The grapes were harvested at the perfect moment, with the aim of limiting the alcohol content to 13.5%. Fermentation took place in a combination of oak and concrete vats, with 30% of the grapes being foot-trodden whole clusters. This process allows for a gentle extraction of flavors and enhances the wine's structure.

Following a long maceration period of 40 days, the Supersonico underwent maturation in used oak barrels and large oak foudres for a year. This aging process adds complexity and refinement to the wine, resulting in a harmonious blend of flavors and textures.

Upon tasting, one is immediately struck by the supple and juicy nature of this wine. The grape pulp sensation is both luscious and delectable, with a velvety mouthfeel that caresses the palate. The tannins are incredibly fine, contributing to the wine's overall elegance and sophistication.

With only 4,200 bottles produced, this limited-edition wine is a true collector's item. The 2018 Bodegas Frontonio Supersonico is a testament to the artistry and passion of its producers. Bottled in March 2020, it is ready to be enjoyed now or can be aged further to enhance its already exceptional qualities.

In conclusion, the 2018 Bodegas Frontonio Supersonico is a Grenache red wine that showcases the heights that Spanish winemaking can reach. With its aromatic complexity, refined palate, and limited availability, this wine is sure to enchant both connoisseurs and casual wine lovers alike.
