A bottle of 6th Year of Tondonia, it costs to rescue some of the 64 and seems to have reasons for it. The only drawback of these wines was the excessive "uniformity" that all the bottles presented and the confusion between vintages, the assemblies of different vintages, etc. Well this time we have an authentic vintage, a vintage red with the printing of 1970 (200.000 units - October - 1970)
Tasting note: Medium-reddish ruby red color, limpid, bright, very stable, without precipitates. Amber reflections, lively, glowing. Very thick feeling, thick, permanent tears. Broad, coppery-iodine trim.
Extreme, expressive, with great initial power. Everything flows around a very intense earthy character that brings us all kinds of records to shady bush, leaf litter, humus, to which is added a high quality candied fruit (quince, frosty orange), increasingly present and citric. Very fine, smoky, creamy with an elegant reductive background of old leather, tung oil, Havana leaf.
In the mouth it is pure joy. Vivid, energetic, tense, with an acidity that compensates for any disarray over the years in the bottle. Ample, tasty, acidic, full of reduced red fruit, spicy. All very well placed, with great elegance and roundness, caressing, with velvety tannins. Not to be missed !!!
