Flaco means “dude” in English. True story! In the words of The Savvy Lush (a wine blog from Minnesota), Flaco “is the best goof-proof, budget-friendly wine out there.” Flaco is produced by Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico in the Demoninación de Origen (DO) of Vinos de Madrid. Its luscious fruit and soft texture make it a perfect wine for everyday drinking. Madrid is not only the capital of Spain but also one of the country's most interesting wine growing regions. Produced from organically grown, dry-farmed, head-trained vines on sand, limstone, and clay soils, the yields are very low (31 hl/ha average). The wine was aged in stainless steel and cement tanks. Vinous (Josh Raynolds): 90 "The red fruit nose shows Pinot-like energy. Silky and sweet on the palate, offering intense but edge-free raspberry and spicecake flavors. A wine of noteworthy elegance, especially for the money. Finishes sappy, floral and long, with lingering red fruit character.
