Only the very best Tempranillo grapes are selected to create this wine. Its grapes are selected from 40-year-old vines that produce no more that 4 to 5 small scattered clusters.
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 shaded cherry red with touches of brown. This wine exhibits elegant and powerful aromas on the nose. Its palate is complex, powerful and full bodied; perfectly integrated.
An ample wine that matches perfectly with all kinds of red meat dishes, game, stews or cheeses.
Between 16-17ºC. We recommended that this wine is served half an hour after opening.
Its grapes are carefully selected and handpicked. They undergo cold maceration, before proper fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26 to 28 ºC that guarantees its maximum aromatic potential. After the fermentation, a post-fermentation maceration takes place for 10 days. Then, the wine spends 24 months in American and French oak barrels before bottling. The wine completes its ageing process in the bottle, where it remains for 12 months.
About this wine
“Deep ruby with purple nuances. Aromas of ripe candied fruits meld with clove notes and a delicate trace of toast on the nose. A refined, elegant and fruity wine on the palate with good acidity. Elegant.” Gilbert & Gaillard
“Very Good, Strong Recommendation: Smoked herbs and dried pomegranate seeds create a savory aroma. Tart red cranberries and toasted vanilla are complemented by a subtle cedar and pine undertone. The tannins are supple creating a smooth texture with a silky finish.” Ultimate Wine Challege
