Made from 100% Tinto Fino, as Tempranillo is known in Ribera, sourced from the best vineyards of Páramo del Duero, Pesquera; these are located at an altitude of 950 metres and the vines are about 25-30 years old. The wine is aged for 14-18 months in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, followed by a minimum 6 months in bottle prior to release. A rich, carmine-red colour in the glass, it is intense and concentrated. The nose shows notes of liquorice, toasted oak and developed cherry and dark fruit; the palate is powerful, wide and long with a mineral note backing the fruit and spice.

Priced at a few dealers for around the £30+ mark, not here.
