Pico de Luyas

PICO DE LUYAS

Behind the Trus winery stands this peak, which perfectly represents the character of the finest sites in Ribera del Duero: limestone soils, with bedrock very close to the surface and clay-loam slopes with limestone where the vines grow in perfect balance. The south-facing estate lies at an elevation of 900 metres in the village of La Horra. All of these features result in a distinctive
Ribera del Duero red that is mineral, intense, rich and full-bodied, ideal to be enjoyed at leisure.

A château in the heart
of the Ribera del Duero
The winery is surrounded by more than 60 hectares of vineyards integrated into the landscape for the creation of great wines.

The harvest is done manually in boxes that are immediately transferred to the winery, the grapes go through a selection table to produce only the highest quality fruit.
Inside the winery are the tanks where the grapes are placed with the greatest care so that they do not suffer during the process.

There is also the bottling hall, the dormitory where the wine rests once bottled and, of course, the extraordinary barrel hall.
Concrete breeding At Bodegas Trus we have incorporated for years the ageing process in ovoid concrete tanks that allows microoxygenation through the pores. The wine ferments Inside, the wine ferments with its own yeast and undergoes a subtle internal movement (battonage) due to temperature differences.

This ageing on concrete cancels out the inevitable contribution of the barrel to the tannins and aromas of the toast. The result is always a purer wine (greater varietal character) and a more glyceric mouth.
Oak ageing In the barrel room the oak is the best ally of our wine. We have 1000 French and American oak barrels in different capacities 225,400 and 500 liters to give each wine a tailored aging, capturing the polyphenols in the wood with the careful contribution of oxygen and enriched in flavors and aromas.

This method allows the wines to be produced per estate or plot, so that all the wines from the Trus winery have the personality of the land where the vineyards are planted.
