Bodegas Fuentenarro (4 months in oak barrel)
Varietal: 100% Tempranillo
Region: Ribera del Duero, Spain
Nose: Good intensity, dominated by aromas ofred and black fruits, blueberries, currants, ripe peach, truffles, coffee beans, on a background of vanilla pod.
Taste: It is afull and envelopingwine. The fruit taste, with a wide and sweet tannin, predominates in the mouth and creates a rounded and nuanced wine with a long and pleasant aftertaste.
Elaboration: After having received the harvested grapes, the natural fermentation process with temperature control begins. When this process is finished, the wine is moved by gravity to the cellar, where it lays down for 4 months in American oak barrels QuercusPetreae.
At the end of this period, the batch undergoes a homogenization process and a soft filtration to eliminate the natural wine lees.
The wine bottles are kept in a room of the cellar called “dormitory”, with the optimal conditions of humidity, temperature, and silence for the wine storage.
