2015 Dominio Romano - Ribera del Duero DO
Dominio Romano was created with the clear goal of the vineyard to pass on the fine character of the Tinto Fino grape as well as the region’s best terroir. The grapes come from 30 year old vines selected from the house’s best plots. And here you really experience the unique terroir in every mouthful. Dominio Romano has fully understood to convey this ancient variety and its character.
The color is dark red in the core with more garnet against the edge. In the nose the wine is intense with deep notes of blackberry, plums, cherry, caramel, coffee and licorice root. With air there is thyme, fine white smoke, scallops and a nice note of chocolate. The taste is both rich and soft with fine layers of dark berries, graphite, vanilla, blueberry marmalade and sweet pepper. Under the fruit lies a nice tannin that balances the powerful personality of the wine.
Maturation: 12 months in large used French dishes and rounding on clay amphora.
Fits: grilled red, lamb, pork, mushrooms and full sauces
