Comments about wine Svmma Varietalis 2010:
We met at a dinner with friends at a place where we usually try new wines.
With a fairly high price in restaurant, close to thirty euros per bottle, we set out to test a good wine.
Innovative regarding terroir Domain Valdepusa (the first domain payment awarded in Spain 2002), with an attractive image which highlights the cross in parentheses (+) and a cellar we already knew: Marqués de Griñón.
We are facing a full-bodied wine, powerful and typical of the area where it is harvested with a flavor that we would say halfway between La Mancha and Extremadura.
With an aroma and alcohol present fairly, we face a different and balanced wine, but really for the price you could expect much more from him.
Although wine itself is good, has character and power, its high price makes its value drops to just correct.
Dominio Valdepusa.  Falco Family
A good wine, though image, origin, price and winery we come up short, we expected something more.
