Winemaker's Notes:

A deep, opaque cherry color, with strong purple hues. The nose has a very high fruit intensity of blackberries, raspberries, blackberries and black licorice, which are combined with roasted and spicy flavors typical of aging in French oak. On the palate, it is very fleshy and dense, very broad. It has balanced acidity, soft tannins and long, fruity and spicy finish. A treat to the palate and the senses... In short, a sip of Ribera del Duero.

About Bodegas Convento de las Claras:

Bodegas Convento Las Claras is located in Curiel de Duero, 3 km from PeƱafiel, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. The building, modest in appearance, hides a cozy and functional winery, ideal for making quality wines and a winery visit.

Our challenge is to produce high quality wines that express the nature and personality of each of our vineyards and represent the greatness of Ribera del Duero. The combination of (clay loam, sandy clay-limestone Franco) unique soils, old Tempranillo vines, the climate of the Ribera de Duero and meticulous work in the vineyard, over the years, has given grapes with exceptional quality that are treated in the cellar with the greatest care possible in order to extract their oenological potential.
