For all its reputation as a rising star on the spanish scene over the past decade or two the landscape of ribera del duero is suffused in centuries of wine heritage – from gnarled tinto fino (tempranillo) vines of venerable age to the labyrinthine wine cellars that wind beneath the streets of the town of aranda de duero.
FOOD MATCHING NOTE
A great accompaniment to fillet steak or slow cooked lamb shanks.
The nose is intense with a pleasant balance of wood and fruit which notes of vanilla, ripened cherries and plums. Secondary aromas of leather and liquorice are also present. The texture in the mouth is smooth with balanced flavours echoing the nose. The tannins are fine and the finish is long and elegant. This wine will keep for some time.
