Additional Information
Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Fuentespina Selección has a clean, bright, intense cherry colour with some garnet tinges.

Nose

This expressive old-vines Tempranillo certainly is a purebred Ribera del Duero. Aromas of blueberries and violets, alongside creamy notes of spices, toast, dry earth and balsam.

Palate

Savoury, bold and palate-coating, this wine by Avelino Vegas has nevertheless a graceful passage through the palate. Roasted coffee, black fruit, cocoa, some lactic touches and hints of sweet spices. This crianza red wine has a good acidity, ripe tannins and long finish.

Our personal opinion

The wine Fuentespina Selección 2016 exemplifies the best qualities of Ribera del Duero's Tempranillo.
