With this wine we wanted to make a classic Ribera del Duero wine, with the magnificent Fuentenebro grapes, an integral vinification in barrels. Intense and balanced flavour.
2015: This vintage had a nice growing and a regular production, which developed with no incidences regarding climate or diseases. The most remarkable fact was the well underway of the crops during all the campaign, especially during the grape ripening. The broad temperature variation between day and night, brought a great final ripening.
Old vineyards planted 40 to 80 years ago, in clay and sand soils, located in Ribera del Duero: Pedrosa de Duero, Valcabado de Roa, Villaescusa de Roa, Fuentenebro and La Aguilera. With heights between 800 and 900 meters above the sea level, and with yields less than 3500 kg/Ha.
Integral vinification in wood with use of indigenous yeast from the grapes.
Double selection in the in the sorting table and with the optical sorting btechnology. Introduced in barrels by gravity. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel.
More than 18 months in French oak barrels. We have used 500 liters light toasted barrels, half new and half used one vintage.
It has a deep red colour with purple tints. Extremely complex bouquet, ripe black and red berry fruits together with spices, liquorice, vanilla, eucalyptus, coffee, plum compotes and toasty notes. Full bodied, powerful, elegant, with a long, long finish with sweet and tasty flavours coming through at the end.
