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.
