Made from a selection of Tempranillo grapes blended with a tiny percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the estate’s older vineyards, more than 30 years old. Hand harvested, traditional winemaking, elaborated by gravity. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tank and oak barrels.
Aged 15 months mostly in French oak barrels, and a small proportion in American oak barrels with a three monthly racking. Afterwards lays down for a minimum of 6 months in bottle before its release.
Tasting Notes: Full of cherry fruit overlaid with vainilla, roasted notes and a hint of liquorice. Meaty, full-bodied, ripe black cherries blend in perfectly with the elegant mature tannins and sweet spiciness. Intense full flavoured lingering finish.
Notes: It is recommended to decant it before serving. To drink now and through the next 5 - 6 years.
This great range of wines bear the name of their creator and owner Carmelo Rodero, fourth generation of a family of vine growers from Pedrosa de Duero, Burgos, in the heart of D.O. Ribera del Duero. During 14 years he sold grapes from his then first 30 Hectares to many top Ribera del Duero producers including to Vega Sicilia. Today working alongside his daughter Beatriz who is the winemaker, they produce a very personal range of wines sourced only from their own 120 Ha. of vineyards, different plots carefully and intelligently chosen, planted mostly with the native Tinta del Pais o Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and small percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The average age of the vine is 30 years, although the oldest are over 70 years old. Very much involved in innovation, Carmelo Rodero has one of the most pioneering vinifying process b gravity, he has patented and built an innovative system of rotating mechanized small tanks which take in the grapes by gravity avoiding pumping-over.
