Fuentenarro 'Gran Reserva', Ribera Del Duero, 2010

33.99

Bodegas Fuentenarro is owned by the family Pérez Garcia and located in the municipality of La Horra, Burgos, with a long winemaking tradition in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The vineyards are organic, between 20 and 70 years old, with sheep manure used for composting, The vines grow on a mixture of clay and chalk at an altitude of 800m-900m. After a manual harvest, in the first week of October, the grapes are taken to the ageing cellar which is built eight metres underground (resulting in a constant temperature throughout the year). After a 20 day maceration the wine is fermented at 25 degrees before four months ageing in medium toast oak followed by a further four months in bottle. The wine is unfiltered with only a gentle cold stabilization. Deep colour, classic nose of black fruits, rose petals, sweet spice and a smidgen of undergrowth. The palate is luscious, full of ripe fruits such as cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant with touches of spice, ripe tannin and fresh acidity. We are smitten!
