Ribera del Duero

Tasting Note

This is a great red wine aged following the times of a mature Ribera del Duero. It is an intense, elegant and lively wine with an deep ruby colour. Intense aroma of ripe black and red fruit, with notes of liquorish and sweet spices. On the palate, it is a perfectly balanced and round wine. It is a fruity and juicy wine with a fresh and acidic aftertaste.

Food Pairing

White meats; lamb roasts or kid, in particular; sweetbread and mushrooms; rice dishes, especially those with meat, such as paellas with rabbit and morcilla made with rice; and any dish seasoned with black truffle.
