DO: Ribera Del Duero
Made only during Special Harvests
WINEMAKERS: Fernando Remírez de Ganuza & Pedro Aibar Sánchez
2016 HARVEST: 2016 was characterized by an unusually mild winter for a continental climate, with a rainy spring that delayed budding. Summer was hot and dry, with high temperatures in June that caused the early onset of flowering. The existing water reserves in the soil allowed optimal ripening. The harvest took place on the morning of October 6, with exceptional grape quality. It was carried out manually in small boxes, and the best clusters were carefully selected by hand.
GRAPE CHARACTERISTICS: 100% Tempranillo. Grown in two exclusive vineyards of more than 100 years old, located in the area of Anguix and La Horra, on the moorlands, at an altitude of approximately 1000m. Cultivated in very poor soils of limestone parent rock.
TASTING NOTES: Very high intensity of color in purple tones. On the nose, it stands out for its great concentration and aromatic complexity, with notes of very ripe red fruit and subtle hints of roasted, smoked flavors, tea and coffee. In the mouth, it is structured, complex and silky smooth, with a long finish. It is an after-dinner wine that should be allowed to evolve in your glass. We recommend opening the bottle and allowing it to aerate for 15 minutes before drinking it.
SELECTION AND AGEING: 20 months’ ageing in new French oak barrels. Only 24 barrels of exceptional quality selected by the winemakers Fernando Remírez and Pedro Aibar for bottling. Not available every harvest.
