The grapes are carefully selected to macerate before fermentation for two days. Fermentation at a controlled temperature (25-28 ºC) guarantees that the varietal expressions are obtained. The wine is then aged for 14 months in new American oak barrels before bottling. After bottling, it finishes its ageing process in the cellars for another 9 months.

RIBERA DEL DUERO REGION
In the last 30 years, the Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero has emerged to challenge the crown of Spain’s greatest wine region; Rioja. Located in Spain’s northern plateau, this region covers four Castile and León provinces – Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. But, despite what its name may suggest, Ribera del Duero does not cover all of the villages along the River Duero. Ribera del Duero was granted its Denominación de Origen status in 1982 and today it has over 250 wineries and over 22,000 ha of vineyards. Most of Ribera del Duero’s production is red wine and only a moderate amount of rosé is produced. No white wines are permitted under the D.O. yet, but they will be soon. The region is characterised by its largely flat, rocky terrain.
