Available Wines

Corimbo

Type: Cosecha

Intense red and dark fruit aromas, with plenty of blackberries, cassis and October berries. Notes of pine and dark cherries, with the oak playing a secondary role. Silky tannins (keeping the Ribera character, marked by a good phenolic ripening), mouth feel and a good acidity that helps extending the long aftertaste.

Corimbo I

Type: Cosecha

Dark fruit driven, concentrated yet fresh. Blackberries and damsons dominate the nose, together with scrub herbs from Ribera del Duero landscape, pine notes and a certain earthiness. Voluminous, showing also an amazing structure and length, yet keeping the freshness.
