Tinto Pesquera Crianza 2019
The history of Familia Fernández Rivera began with the ingenuity of Alejandro Fernández and Esperanza Rivera, as well as the hard work and unity of a family. Together they created—according to Robert Parker—one of the best wines in the world. The group now boasts four wineries. At present, its wines and products are sold in more than 70 countries. Tinto Pesquera is a pioneer in Tempranillo winemaking methods. The wine was given this name in honour of Pesquera de Duero, the town where the winery is located and where Alejandro and Esperanza were born. Tinto Pesquera is the gold standard for wines from this region.
A must-try red wine to fully understand the DO Ribera del Duero. The character of Familia Fernández Rivera is embodied by this forthright wine, brimming with fruit at its best, delicate wood notes and elegant tannins. Tinto Pesquera Crianza is cherry red in colour. On the nose intense aromas of dark fruits together with wood notes. Hints of fallen leaves and spices such as vanilla. In the mouth smooth entry becomes lush with abundant ripe tannins. The presence of well-integrated oak aromas compliments the fruit and spice beautifully. It has an excellent balance between its acidity and heat. The finish is long-lasting, refined and elegant.
