2018 Finca 'La Capilla' Crianza Ribera del Duero
Winemaker Notes: Deep-coloured, glossy and velvety wine. Intense aromas, with hints of fruity freshness entwined with well integrated oak that combines with, but never masks the richness of the Tinta del País variety of the Ribera del Duero. It’s fresh, vivacious and elegantly complex on the palate, with creamy nuances and fine toasted notes. Dense, smooth, enveloping polymerised tannins. Subtle and refined. Perfectly balanced to drink now and with the capacity to age in bottle for several years.
A year of abundant rainfall especially during the winter and spring months, providing excellent water reserves that ensured a favourable vegetative cycle in the midst of a hot, dry summer. Blossoming and budding were very good. An adequate and well-balanced crop, together with an in-depth handling of the vegetation, allowed the grapes to ripen completely, resulting in a harvest that was slightly later than in normal years, but not by much..
