On our estate, there was good canopy development and excellent setting and berry ripening throughout the growing cycle. In September and October we enjoyed remarkably sunny and hot days, with temperatures higher than usual, which resulted in exceptional phenolic ripening. The grapes arrived at the crush pad in impeccable condition, with a good balance between acidity and potential alcohol and high colour intensity, essential parameters to make wines for ageing
100% local red grape, Tinta del País, from El Otero plot in Anguix (Burgos).
Very deep, intense, dark cherry red, with a garnet rim. Clean. Penetrating nose with aromas of stewed dark fruit, hints of underbrush, aniseed and spices underscored by notes of buns, coffee beans, toffee, mocha and black liquorice. Outstandingly wide structure in the mouth, with a good balance between acidity and alcohol content; mature and elegant tannins providing a powerful yet friendly mouthfeel. Big finish, with notes of black liquorice, fruit compote and toffee, for an unforgettable memory
A powerful and elegant Ribera del Duero to enhance red meat dishes, roast lamb and aged cheeses.
