Story of the wine:
Ribera del Duero was until the 1980s better know for growing sugar beet, with the exception of one of Spain’s best wineries Vega Sicilia. It was given DO status only in 1982. Now Ribera is regarded as one of Spain’s best region’s for top quality wines. The region is on a plateau at 700-800 metres above sea level and consequently is rather cooler than other neighbouring areas. The vineyards for the wine are just north of the towns of Penafiel and Pesquera de Duero.
Grape(s): 100% Tempranillo
Area: The vines come from the vineyards “El Carril” and “El Ahorcado” on the road between Roa and Pedrosa de Duero.
Ribera del Duero, in central northern Spain is producing some of the county’s best wines and with producers such Vall Sanzo you can see why. Ripe fruit, spices and licorice, with balsamic, chocolate and nuts and dried fruits hues. Creamy, great structured with elegance and complexity. Persistent and long.
