D.O. RIBERA DEL DUERO

5 months 2021

Monteabellón 5 meses en barrica has its origin in the freshest vineyards located near the Duero River. The soil is sandy-loam, with a slight gravel content. This gives it a very characteristic freshness which, combined with its time spent in the barrel, gives rise to a wine with great personality and marked fruity nuances.

Very deep bright, cherry-red colour.
Very intense aroma with marked fruity sensations of blackberry and blueberries perfectly integrated with quality wood that envelops everything.
Good structure and good fruity expression in the mouth, powerful, with ripe tannins.

Winter was colder than usual, Filomena storm caused plenty snowfalls and therefore a great level of water reserve in the vineyards. A rainy spring and a dry summer with precipitations in September delayed the harvest. Due to the damages caused by Filomena storm and the windy and rainy season during the floration time the yields were low, around 4500kg/ha.
