After a lifetime in the wine industry, Antonio Sanz own family project finally began in 1989. Today his sons are at the helm, with a focus on rescuing nearly forgotten native Navarran grape varietals. With a winery located in the ancient village of Corella in the heart of Navarra’s Ribera Baja region, the vineyards for this Graciano are uniquely situated at high altitudes between the Ebro Valley and Iberian Mountains. The result is a relatively light bodied (for a Spanish red!) with a paradoxical dusty juiciness.
