|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
Sara Martinez Lagos creates the affordable and charming Latido wines. The wines are produced at Bogedas San Martin, the oldest winery in Navarra, and fruit is sourced from the gently rolling hills surrounding the village of San Martin de Unx. The region is exposed to constant, steady wind, and like Le Mistral in the South of France, the wind here helps to moderate vineyard temperature resulting in optimal freshness in the wines.
Sara is dedicated to preserving Navarra's sustainable farming practices and traditional winemaking techniques. She firmly believes caring for the environment is essential to producing high-quality wines. Her vineyards are managed using organic and biodynamic methods, using only natural fertilizers and pest control. She even dabbles a bit with the biodynamic philosophy of following the lunar cycle to determine the best time for planting and harvesting.
As a true champion of Navarra, Sara's winemaking philosophy is centered on expressing the unique qualities of the grapes and terroir of the region. She uses natural yeasts, and the grapes are hand-harvested and sorted to ensure that only the best fruit finds its way into the bottle. She feels wines should reflect the place where they are produced, and she strives to make wines that truly represent Navarra.
All the hallmarks of well-made Grenache are on full show in this violet-red gem from Navarra. In your glass, notes of red raspberry, strawberry, and cherry greet you on the nose. The lush palate is brimming with red fruits, framed by a touch of balsamic and hints of caramel and gentle spice.
A melange of red fruit flavors of raspberry, cherry, and strawberry mingle on the palate, complemented by ample lift, keeping the finish long and clean. It's an intensely drinkable red, thanks to the perfectly ripe and supple tannins. Flavorful and vibrant, this is the perfect pairing for light steaks, rich pork dishes, and all your favorite ragouts and stews.
