Character

Deep purple/black with an opaque core. Exuding that fabled Ribera del Duero warmth, this is a wine with ever-changing facets. Velvety on the palate, with compact tannins and liquorice-like sweet extract. Seductive, concentrated and elegant all at once. Lots of black fruit complemented by fine oak-toasted coffee notes with subtle lebkuchen spice in the background. Tremendous tension culminating in a long finish. Drinking pleasure and ageing potential in perfect combination.

Winemaking

Deliberately low yields, with meticulous selection of exclusively hand-picked grapes. Cold maceration ('cold soak') followed by a slow, gentle fermentation. Subsequent maturation for around 18 months in first- and second-use French oak barrels.

Terroir

Vines aged over 100 years in some cases, situated at elevations of between 500 and 700 metres. Careful, judicious farming on meagre soils to achieve optimum quality.
