APPELLATION: Ribera del Duero DO.
VINIFICATION: Made with 100% Tempranillo. Hand harvested. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation during 12 days and malo-lactic fermentation in vats. Aged 12 months in oak barrels (90% French and 10% American oak).
TASTING NOTES: Deep cherry red colour with purple and red tones. Dense and slow overtone and texture. In nose, a medley of intense fruit aromas (raspberry, plum) with fennel, liquorice and vanilla as well as toasty notes. Well balanced palate with ripe fruit, spices and ripe tannins. Full and lingering finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Perfect for red meats, roasts, fowl, firm-bodied fish such as salmon and pasta dishes.
