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.
The red wine López Cristóbal Tinto Roble has an intense cherry colour with a violet rim.
This blend of Tempranillo and Merlot has an harmonious nose, with nuances of ripe red fruit, wild berries and undergrowth, plus some earthy remembrances and notes of cinnamon, clove and balsam.
Fresh and medium-bodied this red wine of Bodega López Cristóbal has a crisp acidity and a good grip. Spices, menthol, aromatic herbs and red berries. Lively tannins and medium, elegant finish.
