The small estate is located in Méntrida and is in an old typical Toledana house where the oldest part, the cave, dates to the 16th century and was used by their ancestors to elaborate wine in clay vats. With romantic 16th century gardens, the estate has always been linked to the family, and the family always linked to winemaking and viticulture.
Bodegas Jiménez-Landi is now a modern boutique-winery belonging to the Spain ́s Appellation of Origin “DOP Méntrida-Toledo”, one of the oldest in the country. The winery produces limited number of artisan wines following organic agriculture applying innovation and technology.
The dark-skinned Bobal is probably the best known of the 3 grapes and adds color and good tannic structure - its home region is in Valencia, Spain. The lesser known Moravia, full name Moravia Agria, adds structure and grip and has a nice elegance. The third grape in the blend is a white grape: Albillo Real (primarily found in Ribera del Duero and the backbone of the Dominio Aguila Reserva Blanco) adds textural viscousness and density and lightens up Bobal's inky tendencies.
This wine is made as a collaboration with the owner of the vineyard and in homage to his father who took care of the vineyard all his life.
