The three varieties are sorted from vineyards around 90 years of age, composed of clay-limestone soils and planted at 800 metres of altitude, on the margins of the Duero river.
Traditionally vinified, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was fermented in stainless steel tanks, after which it completed malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels.
Once both fermentations were completed, Viña Sastre Pesus 2015 was aged for 18 months in the barrels, during which period it was racked four times.
We suggest decanting this reserva red wine at least 1 hour before drinking.
Only 2,000 bottles produced.
The red wine Viña Sastre Pesus is medium purple with a garnet rim.
This blend of Tinta del País, Cabernet Sauvignon i Merlot succeeds in conveying the true essence of Ribera del Duero. Plums and crème de cassis, with hints of balsam, pine needles and dry earth, with subtle intimations of fine wood, sweet spices and undergrowth.
Full-bodied and energetic, but also smoothened by the years, this wine from Bodegas Hermanos Sastre has a magnificent structure, with ripe tannins and a linear, steely acidity. Flavours of black fruit seasoned with aromatic herbs, toast, spices and fine wood, with a very long, ever-evolving finish.
