  • Region

    In the last 30 years, the Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero has emerged to challenge the crown of Spain’s greatest wine region; Rioja. Located in Spain’s northern plateau, this region covers four Castile and León provinces – Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. But, despite what its name may suggest, Ribera del Duero does not cover all of the villages along the River Duero. Ribera del Duero was granted its Denominación de Origen status in 1982 and today it has over 250 wineries and over 22,000 ha of vineyards. Most of Ribera del Duero’s production is red wine and only a moderate amount of rosé is produced. No white wines are permitted under the D.O. yet, but they will be soon. The region is characterised by its largely flat, rocky terrain.

  • Tasting Notes

    Deep cherry red colour with violet hues. This wine exhibits rich aromas of intense black fruit, cocoa, tobacco leaves and spicy oak. The palate is sumptuous and full bodied, with a long and elegant finish.

  • Food Pairing

    This wine will complement a traditional Castilian suckling pig dinner and is perfect with stews and game dishes.

  • Alcohol Content

    13,5%

  • Best Served

    Between 16-17ºC

  • Technical Information

    The grapes are carefully selected. The must undergoes a cold maceration (for 2 days) followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature between 24-26ºC to ensure the optimum maximum aromatic potential. Finally the wine is aged for 14 months in new American oak barrels before bottling. The bottles are then aged in our cellar for 9 months.
