Altos de Tamaron red wine is made from Tempranillo (Tinta del País) grapes that are carefully selected from vines grown on the clay and loam soils of the Olmedillo de Roa surrounding lands and villages in Burgos.
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.
Deep cherry red with purple tones. On the nose, aromas of ripe blackberry and liquorice. The palate is silky and fruity with a long finish.
A perfect companion to grilled and braised meats, casseroles and pasta with tomato sauce.
The grapes are carefully selected to undergo a prefermentation process for two days. Then they are fermented at 22 ºC to ensure that the wine’s optimum aromatic potential is obtained. This guarantees that the wine acquires its characteristic shade and polished tannins. The bottles are then aged in our cellar for 4 months.
