D.O. Ribera del Duero
Grapes: 100% Tempranillo.
Wine-making: Hand harvested. Selection of the very best grapes from the heart of the D. O. Ribera del Duero. Crusher/De-stemmer. Alcoholic fermentation at a 28ºC(82ºF) controlled temperature. Daily pumping during the process. Long maceration.
Ageing: 24 months in American and French oak barrel.
Tasting Notes: It has an attractive, deep, dark cherry red color. Complex aromas of ripe black fruit (plum compote, blueberry tart) together with hints of spice and liquorice with notes of vanilla, caramel, cocoa and toast coming through. Smooth, full and velvety on the palate with refreshing acidity and powerful tannins. Round with a great lingering finish.
Pairing: It is an excellent wine to be enjoyed by itself, but it goes perfectly with stewed meats, red meats and cured cheeses or simply a nice cigar.
