Montebaco

Ribera del Duero Alma De Vino (2011)

This wine made from old vine Tempranillo (80-100+-year-old vines). 24 months aging in French oak barrels, 25% new and 75% used with a presence of lees to conserve the personality of the wine; no stabilization or fining resulting in a possibility of the presence of sediment.
HARVEST NOTE

Located in the north east corner of Ribera del Duero at more than 3,000 feet altitude, these 80-100+ year old vines are from select parcels containing a combination clay, sand alluvial stones, gravel and chalk; parcel in Banos de Valdearados produces fruit with good structure and fruit while the parcel in Bocigas de Perales the grapes contribute minerality and complexity in the wine thanks to the meter of gravel in the soil supported by clay below; the climate is extreme with harsh winters and scorching during the summer drop at night, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly resulting in soft tannins, good acidity, and bright fruit.

 

TASTING NOTE

Blackberry, a hint of raisin, mild char, and lemon-peel aromas make for a fine bouquet. This is lively, punchy and chewy, with big tannins. Blackberry, chocolate, loamy earth, toast and peppery flavors finish long, baked, ripe and with the potential for an even better future
