|Type of Wine:||Ribera del Duero Roble|
|Region:||DO Ribera del Duero|
|Composition:||100% Tempranillo Per Year|
This Roble, or "Joven" wine ages for three months in barrel and six months in bottle before release. This is the youngest expression of our Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero. Grown in mineral soils that are a mixture of gravel, stone and red clay, situated at elevations between 800-900 meters, or over 2700 feet. The average vine age of our Roble vineyards is between 25-40 years of age. Tempranillo at this altitude takes on very different characteristics, with thicker skins to protect the fruit from cold nights and warm days, as well as an ability to mature at a slower rate and ripen evenly.
Notes of bright cherry and raspberry with a touch of spice, great lift, freshness and balanced character.
