Dominio Basconcillos 2016
Made with 100% “Tinto Fino” grapes and matured for 6 months in French Oak barrels. This wine is made with grapes from vineyards with following a criteria of ecological production.
The vineyard work is carried out according to the requirements of Regulatory Council of Organic Agriculture of Castilla y León, so only natural products are used only as preventive measures. All maintenance and weeding occur mechanically and manually, eliminating the use of any products of chemical synthesis or herbicides.
Once in the cellar, the grapes in 16 kg crates go to the table where they are selected and chosen, separating any cluster that does not meet the stringent criteria of maturity, health and cleanliness.
The destemming is done directly over each tank, so the grapes arrive intact to the fermentation vessel where the maceration is performed. Even the yeasts for alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation bacteria are indigenous, existing naturally in the skins of the grapes themselves. As a result the wine transfer the same ecological character getting the title of Ecological Wine.
In the nose you find a very well structured wine with some creamy and toasted barrel aging touches. In your mouth wait for a smooth entry with ripe velvety tannins. Long, elegant, fresh and very well balanced across palate.
This is a great wine that definitely is worth to try. The best Vintage in 2011 got a stunning score of 91 points in “Wine Spectator” and since then this wine earned a prestigious position in Ribera del Duero as a high quality wine.
