Covering only 1/4 of hectare, the unique soil and different orientation give a very special profile that deserves to be separated from the rest of Viña de los Pinos. Due to that triangular shape of the plot, as much as we could look for another surname for this Cantariña 3 wine, there was no real alternative option than using the only name we have ever called it by.
A very special wine, with a potential long ageing capacity… and unfortunately very scarce. A true triangle of forces.

Tasting Notes El Triángulo 2018
Dark inky colour, it gives flower, forest and black berries and red fruits on the nose. Velvety feeling, profound taste, balanced minerality and freshness showing delicate tannins give it length on the palate and invite to another taste.
