Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The single-vineyard Tempranillo 2015 Malleolus de Sancho Martín fermented with their own strain of yeasts and matured in French oak barrels where it underwent malolactic and 18 months élevage. This is always more expressive than the Valderramiro; it's oaky but there is a different style of oaking, or the wine takes the oak differently. It's more aromatic and nuanced, with hints of graphite and tar and flowers, with more complexity and a gentler mouthfeel. There are plenty of grainy tannins, concentration and power, and it should develop nicely in bottle. It follows the style of the ripe and powerful 2015, a year that delivered tannic wines. 2,875 bottles were filled in August 2018.

Aged for 22 months in new French oak barrels.
