Our winery is located in Curiel de Duero, in the heart of the Designation of Origin Ribera del Duero. We work hard to make perfect wine through a combination of traditional winery techniques with modern technologies. Between 1920 and 1930, Don Pedro Nunez de la Cuesta planted vineyards in Valdecuriel, and some of them are still in service. Between 1980 and 1990, Don Gervasio Granado, who is famous for its talent in making wines, began to plant new vineyards with the brand new trellising techniques. This was the beginning of the brand new winery, situated in a new building at the foot of our vineyards Valdecuriel y las Pinzas. The winery is surrounded by mountains; that is why the winery is called Bodegas Altogrande.
We manufacture our wine exclusively from our own grapes combining great old traditions with modern winery techniques. Our wines belong to Denominacion de Origen Ribera del Duero, which guarantees the highest standard of quality under protection of the Spanish Government.
High-to-mid depth ruby red wine with a slight edging tile. Clean and bright. Very intense and complex. Red and dark fruit flavors in marmalade (blackberry and red currant), good combined with touches of wood, as chocolates, clove, pepper and a slight hint of licorice. Violet aroma which gives an exceptional elegance to the wine. Generous and pleasant entrance into the mouth with ripe tannins well achieved. It is a meaty and well-structured wine. Delicious and full-bodied with black plum fruit sensation of liquor and chocolate. Balanced and persistent wine.
