D.O. Ribera del Duero
Variety 100% Tempranillo / Parcela Wine
Pedrosa de Duero, Burgos. Selected parcel on the El Picón estate: 1.6 hectares of clay-loam soil with surface gravel. In production as an estate wine since 1998, only exceptional vintages.
Selected harvest in 15 kilo crates.
The grapes rest in a cold chamber for 24 hours before being processed.
To extract the maximum expression from the grapes, they are fermented in a French oak wooden vat at a strictly controlled temperature. To trigger fermentation, a sediment is produced in the vat with yeast selected from the original parcel.
After 40 days the wine is removed from the vat for drawing off.
Malolactic fermentation is done at 22ºC for 32 days, without adding bacteria and in French oak casks.
The wine is left to rest for 22 months in selected grain French oak casks that have been dried for 60 months, with four rackings. The flavour is rounded for a minimum of 40 months in the bottle, with no filtering or clarifying.
Picota cherry colour.
Balsamic aromas, blackberries with spicy hints like cinnamon, leather and black liquorice. Wide range of sensations providing complexity.
Intense entry in the mouth, with sweet tannins and exquisitely well rounded.
