€ 25,35 (in Vat)
|Region||Ribera del Duero|
Produced with Tempranillo grapes from organically farmed, non-irrigated vines, the 2015 Corimbo, their second wine from Ribera del Duero, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barrels, 80% French oak and the rest American, for 14 months. It's a dark, ripe, modern and concentrated Tempranillo that is easy to identify as Ribera del Duero, with notes of black fruit and sweet spices, something balsamic, faintly medicinal and with diesel-like minerality, and a medium to full-bodied palate with ripe flavors that reflect the character of the year. It has round and polished tannins and moderate acidity. 117,250 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2017.

An entrancing nose of fresh violets, licorice, peppercorn, oyster shell, cloves, citrus and lavender. A very sleek palate follows with edgy, grainy tannins and so much zesty acidity and drive.
