|Robert Parker Review:
The 2010 Filon was sourced from 30- to 40-year-old vineyards. It offers up notes of smoke, mineral, and wild cherry that mingle with layers of ripe cherry fruit on the palate. A bit more elegant than the Retorno bottling but no less pleasurable, this savory offering over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
Bodegas Terra Sigilata is located at one of the highest points in Calatayud, a DO known for its old-vine Garnacha.
