Product Description
Details

The Bodegas López Cristóbal winery produces the wine López Cristóbal Tinto Roble from vines grown in Finca La Linde, a vineyard located at an altitude of 770 metres above sea level.

Virtually a varietal Tinta del País (Tempranillo), the composition of this Spanish red wine includes a droplet of Merlot (5% of the blend). Both varieties grown in slimy-limestone soils, and the vines are around 20 years of age.

Harvested by hand, after a traditional vinification this red wine from Ribera del Duero was aged for 3 months in new French oak barrels.

Finally, López Cristóbal Tinto Roble 2019 from Ribera del Duero was aged for a further 3 months in the bottle.

Pair with BBQ meats or a cheese platter.
