Details

The Bodegas López Cristóbal winery produces the wine López Cristóbal Tinto Roble from vineyards located at altitudes around 800 metres above sea level.

This Spanish red wine is made from a blend of Tinta del País (Tempranillo) and a touch of Merlot, grown in slimy-limestone soils. 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 2018 from Ribera del Duero was aged for a further 3 months in the bottle.
