Botijo Blanco 2020, Frontonio, Spain
We love supple white wines that have texture, like this Garnacha (Grenache) blanca. That doesn't mean they're heavy - rather, a nice rounded mouthfeel, where you can sense the body of the wine.
This Garnacha comes from Aragon and has a lifting, citrussy vibe.
Frontonio is the passion project of three friends; Fernando Mora MW, oenologist Mario López and international business lawyer Francisco Latasa from Zaragoza. The winery is named after Saint Frontonio, the Patron Saint of the village. According to legend, Frontonio was beheaded by the Romans, his head found upstream after it had been thrown into the Ebro. Going against the current is at the heart of this project, hence the name Frontonio.
