Ribera Del Duero Tinto Roble 2020
From a selection of parcels that give the highest quality of fruit and perfect health, near to the Roa and Fuentecén area, with bush trained vines and an average altitude of more than 800 metres. Hand harvested. Cold maceration in inertized tanks over three days in order to extract a very bright and intense colour, as well as a great number of aromas. . Alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 24ºC. Then, malolactic fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks.
Subsequent racking to French and American oak barrels for a minimum of three months, with meticulous care taken of the barrels, with each one filled by hand. After this short ageing has been completed, and each lot of barrels has been tasted scrupulously three times, the final blending of the wine takes place and the wine undergoes a long resting period in tank with constant homogenization to integrate all the components.
A very deep coloured wine, with an attractive cherry red colour and a violet rim. Very seductive on the nose, the black fruit overwhelms the senses and draws together the freshness and ripe, rich flavour of the wine. A long finish, with a touch of spice, notes of sweet cinnamon and vanilla that make it an altogether delicious wine.
In Summary; a young, juicy wine that is big and bold but made for drinking in its youth. In other words you don’t need a knife and fork at the ready to drink this Ribera.
