The launch of the Vinos de Pueblo (Village wines) range marks the beginning of the new stage that we undertake in Legaris, in which we want to express the richness, uniqueness and diversity of the Ribera del Duero. Soria, the most virgin and atypical area of Ribera del Duero: this wine shows a profile of Tinto fino perhaps less known, such as that of the province of Soria. From a small vineyard located in Alcubilla de Avellaneda, we elaborate this singular wine with a very peculiar Tinto fino profile: elegant, floral and delicate. Limited edition of 2,200 bottles.
This wine has been made exclusively with the Tinto Fino variety. The grapes come from a vineyard of about 20 years located in Alcubilla de Avellaneda, a town belonging to the province of Soria that is located at 926 meters of altitude. We have selected a plot that crowns the hillside. The small vineyard is planted in clay soil with great water retention capacity and high iron concentration that gives it a reddish color.
Characteristics of the vintage
The 2015 vintage was one of the great harvests of the Ribera del Duero. A somewhat warmer and drier autumn than usual in these places gave way to a cold and long winter. Although until March the temperatures were up to 2 °C lower than usual, the minimum values were less extreme than in other years. Those cold preceded a few months with particularly high average temperatures, which accelerated the budding in the vineyard and the cycle of the vine in general. The trend remained on the rise, June was very warm and ended with a heat wave that lasted during the first half of July. The pluviometry was placed at values below the means. Finally, in September and October there was a slight decrease in daytime temperatures (25 °C maximum) and nighttime temperatures (around 7 °C minimum), which lengthened the vine cycle, benefited the ripening process and the grape's acidity. These days of additional maturity allowed us to achieve an optimum phenolic maturity of the grape, which in this vintage presented an impeccable health. The wines have a very high intensity of color, with notes of ripe red fruit sticking out. The palate is broad, with soft tannins and good structure, which presage a good aging potential in barrel.
