The La Santa de Úrsula bottling from Envínate is roughly a fifty-fifty blend of Listán Negro and Negramoll, with a couple of percent of Listán Blanco co-planted in the vineyard. The vines are more than one hundred years of age. A small percentage of the wine underwent carbonic maceration, with the rest fermented with about twenty-five percent whole clusters. The wine is aged in older Burgundy casks for eight months and bottled without fining or filtration. The 2021 La Santa offers up a deep and complex bouquet of dark berries, bitter cherry, tree bark, sweet botanicals, incipient notes of chipotle pepper, a fine base of soil and a topnote of orange peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and beautifully pure at the core, with lovely transparency and grip, ripe, fine-grained tannins, tangy acids and outstanding balance on the long, complex and extremely classy finish. This is a stellar young wine. 2028-2065+.
