Flaco means dude in English. In the words of The Savvy Lush, Flaco “is the best goof-proof, budget-friendly wine out there." Flaco shows the complexity of a serious wine for the price of a song! The 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. The outskirts of this great royal city are full of old Tempranillo vines. Most Spaniards do not know that Madrid makes wine, and therefore don't know the incredible values that Madrid showcases at the present time. Madrid is the great unknown.
The Flaco Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are produced from the Malpica estate grapes near the town of Toledo, 60 miles south of Madrid. The Malpica estate is today's largest vineyard in Europe with 2,500 acres of vineyard land with an additional 1,500 acres to be planted in the coming years. The large size of this vineyard and the fact that they are owned by the same family, allows for great attention to quality in addition to great economies of scale. These vineyards located near Toledo are suited for growing high quality grapes. The lack of humidity and cold night temperatures produced consistently healthy balanced grapes.
