Daniel Landi Cantos del Diablo 2019


In Stock

“The bottled version of the 2019 Cantos del Diablo comes from a warm, Mediterranean vintage. It’s a little more fruit-driven, ripe at 15% alcohol but keeping the freshness. The 2019 tannin is still there, even after one year in foudre and an additional six months in concrete to polish the tannins, a practice common in other wines from the vintage. The profile is a little earthier, a little more Italian if you like but with the combination of the floral and Mediterranean notes. It’s the more Mediterranean of the 2019s, developing a note of esparto grass in the glass. So, this was bottled later, in July 2021. 1,595 bottles were produced. I’d wait a little longer for this. Drink: 2023-2029. 94 points

The wines from Dani Landi are produced by Comando G in the facilities of Comando G, but the different label reflects just the ownership of the vineyards. So, I always taste the wines together, and I compare them with the wines from Comando G. Starting with the 2021 vintage, the wines from El Real de San Vicente will be transferred to a new project called Vinicola Mentridana, where Daniel Landi will share responsibilities with his friend Curro Bareño, both born in the village. And there will be a new village wine from there, called Mentridano, produced with their family vineyards. So, 2020 is the last vintage for Uvas de la Ira and for Cantos del Diablo here.”
