Description

Climatic conditions: the winter was cold and rainy but spring was fortunately mild and the shoots appeared at the end of april a little earlier than usual but having avoided any frost damage. May and june were warm but not in excess reaching a maximum temperature of 29o °c allowing for a progressive and even development of the vines. The summer months were perfect with a high interval of temperatures between day and night – an important quality factor in our region- and by mid august with the beginning of veraison we began to suspect we were heading for a great year. September’s early rains were very beneficial and we began to harvest grapes of exceptional quality on the 22nd. In no hurry at all and at a very comfortable pace we finished on october 13th. The fermentations confirmed our expectations: 2014 is one of the very best years of the last decade in ribera del duero. Grape origin: 100 % tinto fino (tempranillo ) primarily from very old vines ranging from 40 to 80 ye,,wine~ribera del duero~spain~~castilla y leon~,2016,n,red,n 998,843700569904,1perinet merit priorat [spain],750ml,4,24. 94,269. 31,12,,n,the wine a blend of 33% cabernet sauvignon/32% merlot/5% carignan/5% grenache/25% syrah that is half destemmed and half whole cluster and then fermented in all stainless-steel tanks using carbonic maceration.
