This wine represents a collection of sites located in Sotillo de la Ribera, at altitudes between 855 and 870 m altitude. They are franc-clayey soils, with limestone bottoms, very loose soils, and oriented to the south, which allows a perfect maturation. Here Tinto Fino (aka Temprenillo) expresses itself with elegance, very primary, with fine and delicate tannins. Intense sight cherry colour, with an edging of cardinal tones. The nose is very aromatic with notes of wild red and black fruit, rosemary, lilac, scrubland, oregano, cinnamon, and confectionery notes. The palate is complex and structured, highly integrated wood step fruity, black plum and blueberry, smoked fine, mineral character with a lingering finish. Hand harvested grapes. It’s a blend of 87% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 9% Garnacha and 4% Albillo Mayor. Aged in new French oak for 15 months.
Food Pairing: barbecued beef brisket, ratatouille, ribs, moussaka.
15 months in oak
