D.O. RIBERA DEL DUERO

Careful selection from our estate

Vineyards

Our own vineyards in Roa, La Horra and Anguix. Exclusive selections from the finest corners of the estate, in areas with very low production. Plantation grafted by hand in the field, with vine shoots selected from old vines in the area, an unusual practice that makes the vineyard special.

Soils

Interesting similarity of soils, of high viticultural value. Predominantly old land, of tertiary origin, with low levels of organic matter. A light and sandy texture with very good airing and drainage conditions. Corners or picones as they are locally known, of mucky sands with alternating layers of whitish limestone provide elegance and finesse.

Weather in 2017

Deposited in small vats, respecting the origin of each small portion of the selected estate and fermented separately until the end. Slow alcoholic fermentation of the whole grain with indigenous yeast. Prolonged maceration but avoiding over-extractions. Malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. All movements by gravity, undertaken with the utmost care.

Harvest

Manual harvest, carefully searching and selecting in those areas of the estate with the best strains. Choosing cluster by cluster in each plant, according to the vigour and vegetative expression of each small partition of plots.

Fermentation

Deposited in small vats, respecting the origin of each small portion of the selected estate and fermented separately until the end. Slow alcoholic fermentation of the whole grain with indigenous yeast. Prolonged maceration but avoiding over-extractions. Malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. All movements by gravity, undertaken with the utmost care.

Total stay in the barrel

12 months in new Bordelaise barrels made of fine grain French oak.

Refining in the bottle

Minimum of 2 years ageing before launch date.

Tasting notes

Vibrant colour for this intense, dark and mature wine. On the nose diverse hints of black fruits, Chinese ink, liquorice, spices and exotic wood. Harmonious and balanced. Initially robust, then softened by ageing in the best oak and long refining in bottle. The results are an elegant, lively, velvety well- structured wine. To enjoy now and very suitable for ageing for the next 10 years.
