Region

The Denominacion de Origen of Ribera del Duero was founded in July 1982 by an organisation of wine producers and growers who were determined to promote the quality of their wines and enforce regulatory standards. Located in the country`s elevated northern plateau, it is an autonomous community within Castilla y Leon. As the name suggests, the region follows the course of the Duero river and includes the areas of Burgos, Valladolid and parts of Segovia. Like Rioja, the region produces wines selected for long ageing and uses the same age categorisation for its products.

Producer

Bodegas Resalte de Penafiel was established in 2000 in the Ribera del Duero region of Spain. They have 80 hectares of vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery where they combine traditional winemaking methods with modern technology to create high quality, modern wines which are reflective of the region.
Tasting Notes
This Roble is 100% Tempranillo from sandy and calcareous soils. The wine spends 5 months ageing in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels which imparts a subtle sweet spice aroma. The palate is juicy with concentrated black cherries and blackberries combined with cocoa and an subtle mineral character.
Food
Serve with Spanish tapas, tomato pasta dishes and cheeses.
