A varietal Tempranillo, the grapes are sourced from the Malabrigo vineyard, a north-oriented parcel with soils composed of sand, clay and cobble stones, situated at 800 metres of altitude, in a harsh area very exposed to the wind.
Hand-harvested and carefully selected, the grapes were macerated with the skins and then fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks.
After that, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was transferred into French oak barrels, where it went through malolactic fermentation for a period of 30 days.
Finally, Malabrigo 2018 was aged for 18 months in the barrels.
Decant this Crianza red wine at least 30 minutes before drinking.
Pair with roast recipes, aged cheeses and cold meats.
The red wine Malabrigo is deep purple with a violet rim.
Rich and refined, this varietal Tempranillo carries aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants, with hints of liquorice and forest floor, some creamy and balsamic hints, and an earthy note.
Textured and gently warm, this wine from Bodegas Cepa 21 has vibrant tannins and a delicate notes of spices and cedar underscoring the intensity of the ripe black fruit. Very fresh, with a note of undergrowth and a long finish with an earthy and herbal note.
