Winemaker's Notes

More than 20 years ago, before the potential of the Ribera del Duero was widely recognized, a visionary wine grower from Roa decided to plant his vineyards. Tomas Esteban selected the best sites around his village, choosing a mixture of different soils (sand, limestone and clay), which he planted with Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), grafted from old vines in the locality.

Telmo Rodriguez has worked with Esteban's family to make this exceptional wine, expressing the character of the different soils, in complex harmony. They have selected the pick of the crop; from bush vines, which produce low yields of intensely, flavoured grapes. Vinified and aged with great care.

Complex, interesting, and intense with soil spices and fruit touches. Fleshy, broad and balanced with a strong background, highly gifted, astringent, dry, quite a long and spicy finish. Magnificent now, it will benefit from further ageing.
