Grapes: 100% Tempranillo.
Wine-making: Minimum 15 year old vines. Hand harvested. Double sorting, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. De- stemming. Lengthy maceration (12days). Alcoholic fermentation controlled at 29ºC(84ºF) in stainless steel tanks. Daily pumping during the process. Malolactic fermentation. Fining and racking and bottling.
Tasting Notes: Red wine made exclusively from “Tempranillo” grape variety from the Denomination of Origin “Ribera del Duero”, along the Duero river valley, in the heart of the region of Castilla y León.
It has a brilliant and deep black cherry red colour with intense blue – purple glints, showing a classic and typical top class “Ribera del Duero” young wine style. Powerful on the nose with a great variety of red and forest fruit aromas and with an exotic floral touch (violets) coming through. There is a fresh attack with a good backbone and a long finish.
Pairing: Perfect to enjoy with pasta dishes, white or red meat, salads and vegetables, smoked sausage meat and any kind of cheese.
