Drawing from the teachings of Fukuoka, Iago Garrido farms just a few granitic, terraced, once-abandoned parcels that he recovered from the densely forested region. His subterranean cellar seems near-magical, with flor developing throughout and a collection of vessels ranging from barriques from Didier Dageneau and tinajas from Juan Padilla.

The wine is crystalline, with precision, minerality, and salinity dominating. Dimensional, with little glimmers of herb and citrus peeking through.
