VINEYARDS

Youngest vineyards of the winery, with fresher orientation and lower altitude.
We have more than 140 hectares of vineyard, from which 60 hectares are distributed in 14 plots within a radius of 2 km. All of them are grown with Tinto Fino from the area, so the difference depends on the soil conditions. Our project of determination of soils emphasises how the type of soil conditions the contributions of each vine to the wines.
Our short-term aim is to influence the typicality of each plot and to make fermentations separately. Then, we’ll decide if the result can be part of a new assembly or if it can be commercialised by its own. A new challenge. A new path for the wines of Ribera del Duero.

ELABORATION NOTES

Wine from our fresher vineyards. Manual and mechanical harvest according to the land, searching for the optimal level of ripening for a young and fruity wine. It is traditionally elaborated after a 10-day fermentation at 24 ºC, looking for the perfect balance between fruit and extraction. A lively wine with body is obtained, keeping all the power of Tinta Fina.

TASTING NOTES

Red cherry colour, high layer, clean and very bright. Very intense on nose, with high complexity. With aromas of red and black fruit, vanilla and spice. Fresh on palate, with good acidity and balance. Sensations of mature fruits.
