The result of a selection of plots planted with older vines, it is a wine to lay down and enjoy, combining the expression of the land with a long ageing period in the cellar. It is dense, deep and complex, brimming with fruit and balsam notes as well as noticeable minerality. It boasts round texture and a broad, lingering and balanced volume.
DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN
Ribera del Duero.
Piñel de Abajo.
Extremely limestone with a slight slope. Very poor in its fertile horizons and with a very fragile texture in depth to favour root penetration.
100% Tempranillo. Tinta Fina del País
Manual harvesting in boxes. Gentle destemming and crushing. Intense maceration, reaching 30 degrees, over the last days of fermentation. Daily pumping over and two délestages at the end of alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Bottled after a brief filtration to avoid altering the wine’s organoleptic characteristics. Long repose in the bottle before release into the market.
12 months in barrel and 24 months in bottle.
“Aromas of spice and blackberry meld with a touch of game on the nose. The palate feels tightly coiled in similar tones alongside vanilla, while the finish brings a kick of toasty oak.”
