Red Wine Malleolus 2018
Crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero. Varietal Tempranillo aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
Availability: In stock
It is made from estate-owned vineyards 25 to 75 years of age, located in Pesquera de Duero.
As for the 2018 vintage, it was defined by a very rainy spring that caused an advanced budbreak. Fortunately, an uneventful summer restored the equilibrium of the vegetative cycle. Thus, when harvest time arrived the grapes were fully ripen and in excellent sanitary condition.
Traditionally vinified, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was first macerated for 18 days in stainless steel tanks, after which it went through both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations. Then Malleollus 2018 was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for a period of 18 months.
An impeccable Crianza red wine, it is advisable to decant it 1 hour before drinking.
Pair with meat recipes.
The red wine Malleolus is deep cherry with a maroon rim.
Oak is quite noticeable, but it does not suffocate the wine. We encounter typical Tempranillo aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants and tree bark, with a pinch of herbs, a hint of clove, cardamom and cinnamon, and a deep earthy note.
Ripe and substantial, this wine from Emilio Moro is spicy, lush and very fresh. Bridled tannins, nice acidity and a long finish with some toasted and balsamic remembrances. A classic Ribera in the best sense of the term.
