I started salivating already with the nose of this wine – it’s slightly bloody, with cranberry and a slight toastiness. Super juicy strawberry fruit, with a smoky, earthy hint, gorgeous acidity and bright red berry fruit, topped off with sappy, soft tannins. Effortlessly balanced and elegant.
This is how wonderful Tempranillo – or Tinto Fino to give it the regional name in Ribera del Duero – can be when it’s not dried out and oaked to death.
Fermented in stainless steel. Aged in used oak. Part aged in amphora.
