Bodegas Hermanos Pecina, Finca Iscorta Gran Reserva 2010 - November 2021 Decanter review

Bodegas Hermanos Peciña S.L. was founded in 1992 by Pedro Peciña Crespo with his three children in a small winery in the center of San Vicente de la sonsierra, where only “cosechero” wine was elaborated. In 1997 the firm began a new phase, with the inauguration of the new bodega and the elaboration of white wines and aged red wines: Crianzas, Reservas, Gran Reservas. Pedro´s grape growing accumulated experience over the years in an historical old school bodega was useful to launch his project under his leadership. The bodega has 50 hectares of own vineyards, an installation to handle 1.000.000 kilos of grapes, 4.500 American oak barrels fitted in three cellars and an two aging stores for 500.000 bottles.

A Gran Reserva wine is a great work, so we need to start with a base wine that meets special conditions in terms of structure, colour, tannins and aromas. This wine is therefore made with grapes from our oldest vines, from which we obtain very small, highly-concentrated berries, with very low yields and extraordinary quality. Picked in the second fortnight in October, this wine is made with a careful maceration at controlled temperatures of 26º to 27º degrees for twelve days. It has spent 48 months in used American oak, and during this time it has been racked eight times from cask to cask, thereby racking it off the sediments by gravity in a natural way. After this time in the cask, it has then spent another 36 months rounding off in the bottle, thereby obtaining the special balance before its exit to the market.

Tempranillo 95%, Graciano 3% and Garnacha 2%.

Ruby-cherry red, with good depth and a fine intense nose with ripe fruit, toffee and chocolate, reduction with a classic bouquet of leather and tobacco. It has polished tannins, good volume, freshness and length.
