A single vineyard wine, Pago de Santa Cruz is made from low-yielding 80-year-old grapevines planted in clay-limestone soils at an altitude over 800 metres above sea level.
Meticulously harvested, the grapes were selected at the vineyard and in the cellar. Then they were macerated for a short period of time and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, this Crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero was aged for 18 months in new American oak barrels. During the process, it was racked four times.
Prior to its release, Pago de Santa Cruz 2020 was aged for a further months in the cellar.
Be sure to decant this Ribera del Duero red wine at least 1 hour before you drink it.

The wine Pago de Santa Cruz is deep purple with a reddish rim.
This impressive Tinta del País opens with some deep mineral notes that convey a real sense of terroir, enlivened by pristine notions of red berries, some balsamic remembrances, finely integrated wooden touches and a panoply of exotic spices.
Powerful and well-balanced, this wine of Bodegas Hermanos Sastre is also detailed and intrincate. First-class fruit, intertwined with remembrances of balsam, spices, flowers, some mineral undertones and the terroir imprint. Ripe tannins and fabulous acidity, with an extremely long finish.
