Ribera del Duero, Crianza
Fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine is then aged 14 months in American oak barrels, the classic component for aging great Tempranillo.
Dark saturated fruit aromatics with plenty of mineral texture are backed up by fresh acidity. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated and should provide plenty of backbone for 5-10 years of bottle age, while still drinking splendidly now.
