Tasting Notes:
It has a startlingly fresh bouquet with wild strawberry, raspberry leaf and crushed stone, straight out of the mid-slope of Burgundy. Palate is medium-bodied, you can feel the tension in this wine. The finish is actually curt and abrupt, but you can sense it unfurling with time and there is a lovely spicy touch on the aftertaste. Sublime.


Grape:
A hundred percent Tempranillo.


Vineyards:
The Tempranillo grapes that make this wine come from our vineyards planted in and around 1920 in Quintana del Pidio, a village in the heart of Ribera del Duero.


Vinification process:
We harvest by hand we do a grape selection right in the vineyard and the we bring the grapes in small stainless steel trays.
