Daniel Gómez Jiménez Landi

Dani Landi is a native of this region dominted by the Sierra de Gredos.

Growing up in Mentrida in a family of vineyard owners and farmers, he knew he wanted to do more than grow bulk grapes and sell them to the local cooperative. Instead he envisioned making wines from his family’s vineyards. 

For many years he was the winemaker at Bodegas Jimenez-Landi, a company he formed with his cousin. But in he left in 2012 to create his own eponymous label. In doing so he kept part of his family’s inheritance, as well as a few sites that he had purchased or leased himself. All of these sites are small isolated vineyards of Garnacha and Albillo perched high up in the Sierra de Gredos.

While they bear various D.O. designations, they are all sites with sandy weathered soils, high in elevation and meticulously and biodynamically farmed.

Along with the pioneers of the Priorat, as well as his partnership with Fernando Garcia in the Comando G project, Dani is redefining what was previously viewed as a workhorse variety, Garnacha, into something that can rival the elegance and finesse of Pinot in Burgundy or Syrah in Hermitage.

    The wine is matured for 10 months in 2000 or 3000-litre large French oak casks.

    Dark cherry coloured, this is a wine of low density with an abundance of tears yet without any tinging of the glass. With an elegant nose, it is serious and profound, fresh and very fruit-driven, with spicy hints of pepper, mineral and faintly balsamic.

    Superb acidity dances on the palate, with less fruit intensity than on the nose, Medium weight in structure and body, it is a tremendously easy to drink Garnacha.

    Las Iruelas is a muscular Garnacha from a plot of 60+ year old, head-pruned vines planted at an elevation of over 1000 meters above sea level. A mixed and sandy terroir of granite, slate, schist and quartz with patches of clay, this is the most complex soil that Dani Landi works in the Sierra de Gredos.

    Hand harvested, the whole cluster grapes undergo natural yeast fermentation in open vats. The wine is then aged for 16 months in 500 litre French oak barrels.

    With beguiling floral aromas that are more reminiscent of the Northern Rhône than the other bottlings from Dani, Comando G or Marañones, Las Iruelas shares the same delicate fruit and delineated mineral structure characteristic of the Gredos, but pitched deeper and more somber.

    Alcohol: 14.5%

    The Garnacha here is sourced from a tiny, 1 hectare vineyard near the village of Cerebros in the Sierra de Gredos, but outside the Méntrida D.O. The vineyards are planted on slate soils, with quartz and red clay, at 950 metres above sea level. The vine ages are approximately 70 years. On this particular plot, the climate is Mediterranean with continental influences.

    This is a superb example of Dani's drive to deliver Garnacha’s potential to make very fine wines and is one of the jewels in Cosecha’s portfolio.

    The grapes are hand-harvested. Whole clusters undergo natural yeast fermentation in open-top oak vats with gentle extraction and a
    total of 60 days of maceration. The wine is then aged for 14
    months in 1,500 litre oak foudres and one French oak barrel. The wine
    not filtered, fined or stabilized.

    Very intense aromatics, incredible freshness, and nervous acidity.

    On the nose, you'll discover pure and bright red berry fruit, with
    delicate floral notes and peppery spices. The palate is greeted with a delicate, yet expressive, and incredibly fresh bouquet of fruit and delightful spice. It continues with an elegant, long and persistent finish.
