Cepa 21 Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2017
A wine with roots anchored in the most authentic winemaking tradition of Ribera del Duero but with an innovative vocation. Elaborated from grapes from an ideal location where exposure, climate and soil combine to obtain excellent grape quality.
2021 was an atypical vintage from the outset, with abnormally high temperatures in early spring that led to early bud break. Frosts at the end of April affected the vineyards and considerably reduced production. The dry, hot summer favoured regularisation of the plant and an early harvest. Its alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 18 days, followed by malolactic fermentation for 30 days. Aged in French oak barrels.
Picota cherry red in colour with a garnet rim. The nose is dominated by Tempranillo varietals matured over time in the barrel but retaining their freshness well. The aroma is enriched by the notes of a respectful barrel ageing and subtle hints of spices and balsamic. On the palate it shows a good structure with a long and persistent aftertaste.
