    The 2017 Manga del Brujo is an unoaked red blend produced with 75% old-vine Garnacha, 15% Syrah, 10% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo. It fermented and matured in epoxy-linen for 15 to 18 months, depending on the lot. I tasted from the second bottling from December 2019. The aromas go more in the direction of red fruit and some more Mediterranean herbs compared with the Papa Luna, the other red I tasted from the same vintage and a similar price. This has more finesse, fine tannins and integrated acidity. Most of these reds are bottled with a high level of dissolved gas, a way to keep the wine and preserve it in the bottle; it keeps the wine fresh. This is a very good 2017, fresher than many. Drink date: 2020-2023. Score - 90. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, April 30, 2020)
