|EAN:||Bodegas Rodero Ribera del Duero Crianza|
Deep red Spanish wine matured in refined oak. Intense balanced taste with a spicy aroma and notes of ripe fruit. Tastes excellent with dishes of wild poultry and beef.
The development of Ribera del Duero has gone very fast. In 1982, the year in which the official designation of origin (DO) was granted, there were only nine wine producers. Now - more than thirty years later - almost 200!
The combination of high altitude vineyards in a warm climate with a big difference in day and night temperature (important for the preservation of fresh acidity and aromas of fresh fruit) and the beautiful local clone of the tempranillo (tinto del pais) are at the basis of high quality red wine.
A good example is this crianza by Carmelo Rodero. Before Carmelo made wine himself, he sold his grapes to the world famous bodega Vega Sicilia. He is now one of the leading winemakers with his daughter Beatriz, an oenologue graduated in Bordeaux.
What is striking in the Carmelo Rodero wines is the high degree of refinement and complexity. This is largely due to Beatriz who introduced the 'Bordeaux' way of wine making and, for example, used a lot of French oak.
For example, the manually harvested crop is processed in a new vinification cellar that would not be out of place in a French Grand Cru.
