About this product +

Producer >

Established in 2008 by Master of Wine Fernando Mora in his garage, Frontonio's range frame the expression of old vines in the Aragon region of Spain. The style is fragrant and lifted, driven by salinity and texture. The variety of soils in the area range from volcanic to sedimentary metamorphic, influencing the wines driving depth and linear expression to their profiles. All grapes come from organically farmed vineyards. They are crushed under foot and aged in old and inert vessels. For those in pursuit of site expression with fruit on the fresher more floral side, these are your wines.
