100% Tempranillo between 25 and 80 years from vineyards of La Horra, Roa, Olmedillo, Quintana del Pidio, Sotillo de la Ribera and Gumiel de Izán. Handpicked in 15 kilo boxes with a second rigorous selection at the winery. Aged 14 months in mainly new French (95%) and American (5%) oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and bottled without cold stabilization.
Very opaque, intense picota cherry red colour and powerful, bright violet shades. Great aromatic intensity on the nose with plenty of largely black forest fruit, ripe blueberries, with touches of white flowers, chocolate and cocoa, in perfect harmony with light mineral touches. Notes of tobacco, together with touches of clove and Jamaican pepper, provide this splendid nose with a touch of complexity. A wine of personality and energy with a powerful, muscular and structured body, vibrant dense black fruit, chocolate notes and polished tannins. This modern-style Ribera is finely balanced, silky, smooth and elegant with a fresh acidity that provides it with the perfect long finish. Excellent with grilled red meats, roast lamb, sheeps cheese, stews and vegetable sauces.
