The 2015 El Carretil is nothing short of phenomenal, one of the best vintages for this pure Tempranillo, which comes from a vineyard in the village of Laguardia on soils that have a very high content of active limestone. Even if in 2014 it had been taken out of barrel a little earlier than in the previous year, the élevage was shortened even further in 2015, to nine months. It's super expressive and open, with a captivating nose, pretty much enclosing the Artadi style, clean, floral, serious, with good ripeness but without excess and with generous oak but a lot less than in the past. The palate combines power with elegance, great balance and super fine tannins. This is a great vintage for El Carretil. 6,500 bottles produced.

Extremely floral with chalk and bone character undertones. Dark fruits. Full body, tight and chewy with an extravagant mouthfeel. Lovely austerity.
