Crianza

Ribera del Duero is Spain's second most commonly found premium appellation and is found in all "Meson's" where roast lamb and suckling pig is served as the wine has structure , great fruit intensity and clean long finish. This is an excellent typical example at a refreshingly affordable price.

Vineyard techniques

Wine elaborated from vine stocks over 50 years old and only from Tinta del Pais variety. The vineyards are located in the central park of Ribera del Duero, between 800 and 900 meters over the sea. The climate is continental with extreme temperatures that contribute to its quality. After careful selection, grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature (28 ºC – 30 ºC) in order to achieve optimum colour and an ideal structure for a wine to be aged in oak. Once malolactic fermentation is finished, the wine is aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.
