Main characteristics

  • Grape variety: 100% Tempranillo or Tinta del País. Grapes sourced from over 50-year-old vineyards, which are head-trained and located at an altitude of 920m.
  • Production: 12,000 bottles.
  • Ageing in barrel: 18 months.
  • Area: DO Ribera del Duero – Villalba de Duero.
  • Soil type: silty and sandy, with some pebbles
  • Climate: extreme continental. A great difference in temperature between winter and summer, and between daytime and night-time temperatures.

Winemaking and Ageing

Winemaking: harvest is done by hand at the optimal ripening time, in small boxes of 15 kg. Grapes are selected both in the vineyard (hand harvesting) and in the winery (sorting table). Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 5-7 days at 10ºC in small vats and subsequent fermentation at controlled temperatures during the whole process. Malolactic fermentation in 225 l new barrels.

Ageing: 18 months in 225 litres new barrels (75% French oak, 25% American oak).
Bottling: once bottled, the wine is aged in bottle for at least 12 months at a controlled temperature.

Tasting note

Deep red picota cherry colour with violet hues at the rim. Intense complex nose, with aromas of ripe red and black fruit, dairy notes, spices and chocolate. On the palate, it is powerful and mouth-coating, with silky tannins. Bitterness and acidity are well balanced. An elegant long lingering wine, made to be enjoyed.

Food pairing and suggestions

A perfect match with all kinds of red meat, game, haute cuisine, desserts… Recommended serving temperature: 17ºC.

Potential for ageing: 8 to 10 years.
