Jesús Yllera

D.O. Ribera del Duero

Grapes: Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Wine-making: Produced only in excellent vintages. Hand harvested in small crates. Double sorting, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. Carefully optical selection of the grape and filled by gravity. Whole grapes without stem, to extract maximum fruit aromas. Daily pumping during the process.

Ageing: 12 months in French oak barrel (50% new and 50% second use)

Tasting Notes: It has an attractive, dark cherry-red colour with ruby glints. It is clean on the nose with fruit aromas mingling well with the oak (notes of vanilla, toast, spices, liquorice and truffles). Great structure in the palate, fleshy, soft, expressive and full, with sweet, well integrated tannins. It has a great lingering finish.

Pairing: It has a deep and intense cherry-red colour. Very aromatic and explosive nose, modern and elegant. We can appreciate nice ripe black fruits (plum, blackberry, blueberry) with intense notes of vanilla, cocoa, liquorice, toast and other nice spicy and mineral hints (flint, pencil mine). Powerful tannins. Full body wine, dense, delicate, wide and velvety. Nice acidity which makes it very fresh, with a long and elegant finish that invites you to have another glass.

Alcohol: 14,0%.
