95% Listán Negro. The east-facing, high altitude single-vineyard La Solana gives rise to this eponymous bottling. The La Solana vineyard is planted mostly to old vine Listán Negro. The lack of top soil (over volcanic rock) here brings a very distinctive mineral impact, hence it’s bottled separately as a ‘vino de parcela’. The fruit is vatted into small, open concrete tanks for a cold soak before alcoholic fermentation is made in French oak. La Solana is bottled without filtration. The note below captures the style and quality on offer here, and it is worth noting that this bottling is indicative of the more spacious, graceful style that now populate Suertes’ cellar.
