Why do we love it?

We have great news! Clos Lojen Bobal 2019 Bodegas Ponce has just landed, with a price under 12 euros and a score 92 pts by Robert Parker!

And as if that were not enough, it is a juicy and very summery red wine from the special and rare Spanish variety Bobal. Put it in your cart first and then read below!

Well, here we go. Bobal is a red Spanish variety native to Utiel-Requena located in the southeast of Spain. While the plantings are many, it was usually included in many famous blends, and only in recent years, we meet it as a single varietal. Fortunately, because it has a lot of cherry fruit, fine tannins, juicy acidity, and chocolate aftertaste. On the other hand, we have Juan Antonio Ponce an ambitious and passionate winemaker who has dedicated himself to the promotion of Bobal. Its philosophy includes mild intervention winemaking that expresses both the Manchuela terroir and the character of the variety.

Clos Lojen Bobal is one of them and it is wonderful! The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in whole bunches, for controlled extraction, in oak tanks of 4,500 liters. It is then transferred to 10,000 and 15,000-liter oak tanks where it remains for 6 months.

Clos Lojen Bobal 2019 Bodegas Ponce is much greater than its price as Robert says!

1. Chop onion, pepper and garlic into small pieces. At the same time, grate the tomatoes in the grater and boil the pasta in salted water.

2. In a frying pan, sauté in olive oil the onion, garlic and pepper for 3 ′. Then, add the fresh tomatoes, tomato paste, spices, bay leaf, salt and pepper.

Recipe notes:

-We can add a splash of ouzo, 1 tablespoon is enough
-If we do not want to use fresh tomatoes, we may use 300 gr. tomato juice or concasse
-We can add some cherry tomatoes cut in half towards the end of cooking
-We use the shape of the pasta we like, this sauces tastes better with pasta that do not contain egg
