100% Tempranillo, D.O Ribera Del Duero, Spain
Old world winemaking that is 100% sustainable and free of chemicals. This bodega’s grapes are grown within a natural reserve in the Duero River Valley that has alluvial, pebbly soil and a continental climate perfect for traditional winemaking.
Ribera Del Duero is one of Spain’s truly legendary wine regions. The rural Ribera del Duero, in the central part of Spain, produces some of the world’s best and most exclusive red wines. A good example is the Finca Feroes “Roble,” a Tempranillo wine that seamlessly melds fruit and oak-influenced flavors in a cuvée that delights the senses with its engaging aroma, complex flavor spectrum and elegant finish. The color is a deep cherry and the aromas and flavors combine elements of berry fruit, herbs, vanilla, oak and an earthy-leathery minerality.
The palate is delicate and well structured with rich red and black cherry notes followed by smoky spicy tobacco and hints of wood, vanilla and roasted coffee.
Six months aging in American oak, imparts a savory oak flavor profile and the full-bodied tannins makes for a lingering finish.
Food Pairing: Great with red meats, roast beef and Smoky Barbecue stews.
