This single vineyard is planted entirely to Tempranillo at high elevation. The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed and fermented with wild yeasts in steel tank with 3 months of skin maceration, then raised 12 months in 8-10 year-old French oak barriques. Bottling is without fining, filtration or any addition of SO2. This is a classic Ribera del Duero with fabulous tension between dark fruit, florals, minerals and acidity. In short, the way Ribera should taste. Pair with blood sausage, charcuterie, and grilled lamb chops.
