Comando G

Comando G founders Daniel Landi and Fernando Garcia met studying oenology in Madrid. Bonding over their mutual love of wine, the two found themselves working in similar areas of Spain’s Sierra De Gredos mountain range; Danny at his family vineyard, Bodegas Jimenez-Landi and Fernando at Bodega Marañones.

They were drawn to the windswept and almost abandoned Sierra de Gredos terroir – high altitudes, freely draining soils, as well as a mild and relatively humid climate. Though not an easy terroir for winemaking, Daniel and Fernando wanted to explore to the mountainous terrain, determined to refine the area’s traditionally “workhorse” Garnacha grape into their own unique product.

They gained access to Gredos’ older vineyards by spending time consulting with and gaining the trust of older winemakers in the area, usually by drinking beer with them in local bars. Some of these winemakers were in their 80’s or 90’s, hoping to continue their legacy but without anyone to pass their vines on to.

Dani and Fernando love Toronto. During one fateful visit, they enjoyed beers at Burdock Brewery, wine at Pearl Morissette and belted out Karaoke at the Gladstone Hotel. Dani is an avid rock and roller, with fans including wine critics Luis Gutiérrez of Robert Parker.

    ESTIMATED DELIVERY DATE JUNE 18

    Taking its inspiration and name from the best of Burgundy, the Garnacha grapes come from a small 3ha plot, 900 meters above sea level vineyard near the town of Rozas de Puerto Real.

    Hand harvested, with a fifty day fermentation in open vats, the 1er Cru is then aged for twelve months in 500L French oak barrels.

    With its genesis in the cooler reaches of the Gredos, the 1er Cru nose is intense, yet delicate, with aromas of citrus, dried roses, incense and cedar. This is followed by fresh, succulent juicy red fruit, whose depth is balanced by bright minerality on the palate and firm tannins.

    The 60 year old vines used in Las Umbrias, growing at an altitude of 1100 meters in a mere 0.35 hectares of granite and clay soil, was the first wine produced by Comando G in 2008.

    Produced in a near identical manner as the 1er Cru, in the words of Dani and Fernando: "Las Umbrias is very Burgundian; an ethereal Garnacha, delicate, fragile, elegant… subtlety in all its splendour.”

    The distinct balsamic notes are in perfect balance with the bright fruit, delivering a serious and completely satisfying experience.
