Winemaker's Notes:

2010 was a good vintage that yielded good sugars and resulted in balanced acidity with sweet tannins. The 2010 Vina Sastre Ribera del Duero shows bright red fruit with notes of mushrooms and toast. On the palate, the wine is soft and accessible, with a pleasant fruity aftertaste.

About Vina Sastre:

Hermanos Sastre is a family-run winery located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, in the town of La Horra. The DO of Ribera del Duero is located in the mountainous northern-central Spain. It's high alpine valleys of the Duero River provide respite from the hot Spanish climate and provide a long ripening season from the cool nights. Pedro Sastre is the winemaker in charge of overseeing all operations of the winery. The winery produces a range of wines -- from a "Tinto", with 7 months barrel age to Gran Reservas, all from Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) grape. They also own a unique vineyard site called Pago Santa Cruz. Pago Santa Cruz has vineyards over sixty years old planted by Pedro's grandfather. In exceptional vintages, Pago Santa Cruz appears under its own label.
