Alcohol : 14,5%
Grape(s) : Tempranillo
Localisation : Ribera Del Duero, Spain
Tasting Notes : It really isn’t heavy despite its muscularity and intensity of flavor. Dark cherry and blackberry fruit is in the driver’s seat, with spicy back notes and some savory accents and plenty of fine-grained tannin that is outrun by the fruit in the wine’s finish. There’s almost no sensory sign of oak, except for the softening effect of oxygen exchange from used barrels
The Domain : With the same affection today, together with our sons Rodrigo and Asier but adapted to the new technologies, we continue to elaborate our wines. This project began in 1999 when we took over the family vineyard and planted new plots. In 2003 we built the winery and began making our wines. The result of this project, with all its work, effort and excitement, has been ARROCAL – our passion. Our wines are made exclusively from our grapes, the plots are located in said Burgos área, with an altitude of about 830m. and its soils combine limestone, sand, clay and gravel. We have a vineyard surface of 50 hectares, and the most widespread red variety is “Tinta fina” or “Tempranillo”, with approximately 45 hectares. Next to 2 has. of Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 ha. of Merlot and 2 has. of white variety, “Albillo”. We bet for the respect to the land and the work of the grapevine of traditional form, continuing with the form of work that we learned of that first generation. The main objective is to follow a sustainable viticulture, a true reflection of quality wines.
