Crianza

D.O. Ribera del Duero

Seriously funny. 12 month in the barrel softens the restless character of this modern Ribera.

Technical Sheet

Crianza
Grapes

Tinta Fina (Tempranillo), Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Harvest

The grapes are harvested at its optimum maturity stage, by hand using 15kg cases.

Elaboration

Once the grape is in the winery, it is passed through a grain sorting table, and therefore they are softly de-stemmed and slightly crushed.

Fermentation

Alcoholic – We make a cold soak for 48h. in an inert atmosphere for a better extraction of fruity aromatic compounds from the grape.  Ferments during 12 days at a controlled temperature set at 25ºC, in truncated cones stainless steel tanks of 17.000L of capacity and we perform a post-fermentative maceration of 20 days.

Malolactic – It remains in the tanks with its fine lees during 20 days, and we do a gentle battonage for increasing the volume in the mouth.

Barrels

Aged in French and American Oak Barrels for 12 months.

Tasting notes Intense purple colour with cherry red hues. Fresh nose with red fruits, balsamic and spices notes such as coffee and coconut. An aromatic elegance built on the ageing at French oak barrels. A powerful round-mouth wine, elegant but easy to drink. The result is a wine with a more modern and elegant style so that all people can enjoy it.
