Second vintage of our Vinos de Pueblo (Village wines) collection, where we seek to express the richness, uniqueness and diversity of Ribera del Duero. This wine shows a very authentic Ribera del Duero profile. From a small vineyard located in Moradillo de Roa, on the southern limit of the province of Burgos, we make this unique wine with a profile of Tinta Fina that translates the extreme ripening character to the limit. Extremely cold weather, extremely concentrated wine.
This wine is made exclusively with Tinta Fina grapes. The grapes come from twenty-year-old vines in a vineyard of about two hectares. It is located in Moradillo de Roa, a town belonging to the province of Burgos, situated at an altitude of 973 metres. The stony soils contribute minerality to the future wine while providing good drainage and retaining the diurnal heat to reflect it back to the vines at night.
2016 Vintage characteristics
After a winter during which the vines rested with mild weather and lower rainfall levels than usual, the spring arrived with a vengeance, exhibiting those extreme conditions so typical of Ribera del Duero, with abundant precipitation and low temperatures that delayed bud break. The growing season began somewhat late, gradually recouping through the end of spring and early summer to become even more pronounced during the ripening stage. It was a hot summer, with high temperatures for most of July, the whole of August and a good part of September. Coupled with very little rain, particularly in late summer, the high temperatures induced stomatal closure in the leaves, a reaction that prevents excessive dehydration. This meant a marked delay in ripening, particularly in the case of young plants and those located in more arid locations. Old vines with deep roots ripened at the usual time, while in other vineyards, we had to wait longer for full ripening, chiefly as a consequence of abundant production, with clusters showing berries of average size but in a greater number. However, unbeatable weather in September and October, coupled with the impeccable condition of the grapes, allowed us to wait for just the right level of ripeness and pick the grapes at the perfect time.
