Suelo invertido translates as 'inverted soil'. In the area of Progreso, where this wine comes from, there is fertile soil on the surface and a calcareous clay subsoil with increased concentration of calcium carbonate in the deeper areas. In 2004 Santiago Deicas, the winemaker, wondered what would happen if they had the limestone part on the surface and the fertile soil in the depth. So they did just that!
With the soil inverted, the roots explore a hefty volume of chalky, mineral-laden soil in search of the fertile layer now buried deep down.
The result? Two aromas stand out every year in this plot, grapefruit and mango. These are two very difficult aromas to find in red wines. Another hallmark is the tension of the wine, with huge concentration yet softness of tannins.
