Microcósmico Blanco Macabeo 2021, Bodegas Frontonio, Aragon
On the nose, aromas of lime, white flowers, fennel and mineral character. Fresh and saline on the palate with a long finish.
Bodegas Frontonio is the passion project of Fernando Mora MW and oenologist Mario López. The winery is named after Saint Frontonio, the Patron Saint of the village. According to legend, Frontonio was beheaded by the Romans, his head found upstream after it had been thrown into the Ebro. Going against the current is at the heart of this project, hence the name Frontonio.
Frontonio has emerged as one of the most refreshing wine ventures in Aragón, both in terms of recovering old vines and driving Garnacha`s renaissance in the area. The vineyards are found at over 400 meters high near Épila, on the left bank of the river Jalón, where clay-limestone soils prevail. The Premier and Grand Crus are further west, planted at 600-1000 meters on red slate soils and limestone. The founders also expertly purchase in fruit from local growers with whom they have long term contracts.
