The wine

The Rapolao from Dominio de Anza is one of those wines which justifiably rests on its own laurels, conveying its vitality with every sip. It’s floral, with a complex aromatic array, elegant and showing great purity. Compared with the neighbouring wines from this exceptional site, this Diego Magaña one proves rather more juicy.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

There is a common profile in these 2018s: they are floral, aromatic and complex, wines of elegance and purity, with light and energy. The single-vineyard 2018 Dominio de Anza Finca El Rapolao is from a paraje where there are already a handful of wines from different producers, but all around Raúl Pérez. This is perhaps a little more powerful than the other two. This is juicier and makes you salivate. It has inner strength and finesse, texture and filigree. It has 13% alcohol and is medium-bodied and feels light on its feet, but it is full of energy. This is plain great. Kudos to Magaña for these three brilliant reds! 1,200 bottles produced.

Winemaking

The amount of destemmed grapes or bunches with stalks will vary depending on the vintage year. In warmer years, Diego reduces the usage of stalks whereas in cooler ones he uses more pure whole grapes to gain structure.

Vineyards

El Rapolao

Rapolao is a special site located in the coolest area of the town of Valtuille de Abajo, situated at an altitude of 500 metres and facing northwest. The vines, grown in bush form, are primarily of the Mencía variety, with small amounts of Estaladiña, Garnacha Tintorera and Sousón. The deep soils are a combination of stones and iron-rich red clay, and the grapes ripen late, enabling them to soak up aromas from the woods which surround the vineyards, and result in highly perfumed wines that have delicate tannins.
