Each parcel is fermented separately by indigenous yeasts selected from the Pingus vineyards. 16 small stainless steel foudre are then blended, go through malo in barrqiue and are then aged 16 months or so in 30% new barrels, and the rest 1-3 years old Production is around 5000 dozen.
Truffle-tobacco nose with sour cherry and fruit'n'nut tree aromatics, there's gamey beast-hide, and a purple storm raining minerals. Fine and radiant, with cool blue fruits - powder-tannined, nutty-inky-and-mineral in the mouth, this is Ribera del Duero from on high. Majestic wine.
