Tinto Ribon" Barrica 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

VARIETAL: 100% Tempranillo. Grapes from 20-year-old vines. AGING: Six months in new barrels (50% made from French Allier oak, 40% from American oak and 10% Hungarian oak). COLOR: Vibrant in colour, with intense purple tones denoting youth. Glossy with good clarity. NOSE:Very lively, with distinctive youthful aromas of black and red fruits; strawberry, cherry and bilberry. Elegant mineral notes mingle with tertiary aromas of French and American oak; clove, pepper and vanilla spice aromas, liquorice root and smoky notes. Aromas from aging in new oak barrels integrate well with the grape aromas, never dominating the fruit. TASTE:Lively and elegant mouthfeel with restrained, sweet supple tannins for backbone, held together by balanced acidity. Smooth creamy coconut and vanilla notes mingle with red berries; strawberry, raspberry and blackberry. Long and elegant finish with hints of mineral. Temperature for consumption: 16-17°C. Recommended with all meats, oily fish, cured and semi-cured cheeses and spicy pâtés. Optimal consumption: over the next 2 to 3 years.
