Navatalgordo er en ny tilføjelse til rækken af vine fremstillet under betegnelsen `Vino de Pueblo`, sammen med Rozaz og Villanueva. Den er lavet af 100% Garnacha, der stammer fra vinstokke, der er cirka 60 år gamle. De er forankret i granitjord i en højde af 1100 meter, hvilket markerer det højeste punkt i Sierra de Gredos.
Comando G Navatalgordo 2022 er en saftig rødvin med attraktive mineralske aromaer, noter af frisk rød frugt og antydninger af lilla blomster. Ganen udfolder sig med bemærkelsesværdig friskhed, imponerende finesse og ubestridelig elegance.
Denne vin udviser livlig syre, en behagelig tekstur og en lang finish, der giver genlyd med fængslende mineralske noter.

"The 2022 Navatalgordo, a village red from the village of the same name, is one of two completely new village wines from 2022, as the one from Rozas is an evolution of the Rozas 1er Cru. This was produced to reflect the character of the village, showcasing wines with tension and sharpness. It comes from soils with lots of quartz and was made with their own grapes and ones purchased from growers that have been working together with them at an average 1,100 meters in altitude. It fermented with full clusters in concrete and oak vats with 35- to 40-day maceration, and its élevage was in concrete and oak foudres.
This village produces wines with lower alcohol, lower pH and higher acidity, even in warmer years like 2022. And the wine has more color, even if the alcohol is lower, from the cold. It's a wine that needs more time, more Barolo with a chalky character and slow development. It has a very floral and expressive nose, with electric acidity, and is tense, serious. This is the 2022 that feels less like 2022... Only with time in the glass did it develop some meaty aromas (Bovril?) and spiciness, which pointed at a warmer year and more Gevrey character. It has a contained 13% alcohol and a pH of around 3.0! Incredible parameters for a year like 2022. 11,047 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2023. Only a little sulfur was added at bottling time, never before, as they feel the profile of the wine is more apt to work without added sulfur."

"Glemt alt om den tunge châteauneuf, dette er grenanche fra gamle stokke, vinificeret med hele klaser og med fokus på friskheden, Frisk, mineralsk, letløbende elegant og faktisk tilfængelig trods den purunge alder. 92+ point"
