Ribera del Duero

Tasting Note

Black cherry colour. This is an incredibly complex and strong wine. It has a mix of aromas and tastes of ripe black and red forest fruits combined with black liquorish balsamic notes and bitter almond nuances. It is a long wine on the palate, full-bodied, and it evolves with a layer tannins that have a fine granular texture.

Food Pairing

Very good with white and red meats, roast lamb or beef stew with mushrooms, rice, particularly those containing meat and paella with rabbit, matured cheeses, cured sausages, mushrooms, rice with “morcilla” and black truffle.
