D.O. Ribera del Duero
Grapes: 100% Tempranillo.
Wine-making: Hand harvested. Only made from excellent quality crops. Double sorting, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. De-stemming. Alcoholic fermentation at 28ºC(82ºF) and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. Fining and racking. Aged in oak barrels.
Ageing: 6 months in American and French oak barrel.
Tasting Notes:It has an attractive dark cherry-red color with blue purple tints. Powerful on nose with ripe red berry fruit aromas (mulberries and redcurrants) together with subtle complex aromas coming from the oak (vanilla, spices and roasted coffee beans). Full bodied on the palate with a soft, velvety texture. It has a long finish with wild red berry fruit and vanilla flavors coming through at the end.
Pairing: It is perfect to enjoy with all kinds of meat (especially red and game meats), pasta dishes, and any kind of cheese.
