Considered one of the best Garnacha’s in the world and the Crown Jewel of the Comando G wines, the Rumbo al Notre is one of the more generous single parcel wines they produce. The fruit comes from a 0.3-hectare plot at 1,200m in altitude and comprises mixed Garnacha vines and gigantic boulders on sandy mountain soils. The fruit tends towards darker flavours with an altogether sweeter impression to the fruit and a spicy backbone.

About Comando G

Daniel Landi and Fernando García have been friends since college. Successful winemakers in their own right – Dani at his family’s estate, Bodegas Jimenez-Landi and Fer at Bodega Marañones - in 2008 they started a winemaking project together: Comando G. Along with the pioneers of Priorat, Dani and Fer are redefining Garnacha, previously viewed as a workhorse variety, into something that can rival the elegance and finesse of Burgundian Pinot Noir or Syrah in the northern Rhône.

The duo work with several small, isolated plots perched high up in the mountainous Sierra de Gredos to create truly unique, terroir-expressive wines. The vineyards that Daniel and Fernando have assembled are all farmed biodynamically, with vines ranging in age from 50 to 80 years old. According to Wine Advocate writer Luis Gutierrez "they improve their vineyards from the moment they buy or rent them [...] The quality of their wines is what they strive to improve the most, and the results are there.”

In the winery their winemaking is considered and precise, gently coaxing out the delicate balance of fruit character and terroir from each site. It is this commitment to sense of place, nuance, and finesse that make their wines among the most compelling in Spain.
