An intense wine with great balance and complexity.
D.O. Ribera del Duero
Variety 100% Tempranillo.
Selection of the oldest parcels (80 years) in our Pedrosa de Duero vineyards. Chalky-clay and gravel soils.
Selected harvest in 15 kilo crates. Cold pre-fermentation for 6 days. Controlled alcoholic (primary) fermentation with the addition of selected native yeast from our best vineyards for 20 days with daily pumping over.
Malolactic fermentation is done very slowly, without adding bacteria, at a cellar temperature of 20ºC for 28 days.
The wine is then rested in 300 litre fine grain French oak casks for 14 months, then it is bottled without filtering or clarifying.
Ruby red colour with intense garnet tones.
Elegant complexity in the nose with tones of ripe fruit, cherry, redcurrant and smoky hints with a background of liquorice.
Very well balanced in the mouth due to the maturity of the tannins.
Serving temperature 16-18ºC.
