From Ribera del Duero, a Spanish region I have had only modest success with, this wine is an intense expression of tempranillo. Recommended producers gratefully received. In the glass, the wine has a deep and saturated red colour. Its aromas are savoury and leathery and not bretty, lest that be taken as a subtle inference. The palate is more medium bodied than expected. It is quite tannic, fruity and has good length. Overall, this wine is a pleasant surprise. Ready to drink now, I would buy it again. Rating: Good (★★★). Reviewed: May 2022.
