D.O. Ribera del Duero / Pago de Fuentecojo
Pago de Fuentecojo
There was a fountain located in the depths of a valley located near Olmedillo de Roa (Burgos). Perhaps our grandparents knew that this area was unique and its terrain and climate provided peculiar characteristics. For this reason, they planted here the vines that today serve to make our Pago de Fuentecojo wine.
An elegant and structured wine that rests sheltered from the mountain in place overlooking his birthplace. This powerful wine has a mineral touch, spicy notes coming from walnuts and almonds while blackberries and cherries give the fruity hint.
It is a match made in heaven with Castilian hunting dishes like the ones the walkers took in the shelter of the Fuentecojo fountain.
Pago de Fuentecojo is made from grapes ripened in the eponymous vineyards on the outskirts of Olmedillo. Here the vines are more than 35 years old and produce small grapes with great concentration. All the goodness of the grape and its powerful fruit flavours are extracted during a long maceration and careful winemaking at a controlled temperature of 23 ºC. Then the wine goes into American and French oak barrels for 14 months, before maturing in the bottle for a minimum of six months to achieve its roundness and balance.
