APPELLATION: Ribera del Duero DO.
VINIFICATION: Hand harvested, stainless steel vats with temperature control ( 24C/75,2F). Aged 14 months in French and American Oak barrels. 6 months refining in bottle.
TASTING NOTES: Garnet red with very bright, intense, deep, ruby red hues, maintaining the gleam of youth. Balanced and powerful to the nose, with perfectly blended aromas of wood aging and very ripe fruit. Showing expressive tannis, its notable structure and excellent body in the mouth point to a long life in the bottle.
FOOD PAIRING: Duck magret with figs, braised lamb shoulder with red-wine sauce and beets, filet mignon with goat cheese and port sauce, chili con carne, flank steak marinated in beer, grilled beef tenderloin with blue cheese butter.
