Sadan smager den
Deep cherry red color with an outstanding intensity. On the nose it contains a base of fruit at the beginning of ripening, with character, freshness and remarkable finesse. Sensory notes of barrel over time. The spicy and balsamic aromas stand out, notes of clove and scrubland predominantly. It denotes a perfect integration between the wine and its barrel aging, due to a perfect selection of toasted aromas from the wood.
Full-bodied, well-balanced, tasty and with a broad sensation. Power, fruit and acidity integrated with a firm and rounded tannin. Vivacity and structure give this wine a great potential for expression and complexity over time.
Ideal for pairing with charcuterie, semi-cured cheeses, oily-fish and some white and roasted red meats, such as goatling or lamb. It goes well with mushrooms; also with dishes of sauced cod, and fish in sauce in general. Ideal for pasta with tomato sauce and a perfect ally for tapas with assorted toasts and pinchos.
Valle de Nabal is a wine produced with grapes selected from plots located in the East area of Ribera del Duero. The vineyards have edaphological characteristics that allow a special expression of the grape's maturation.
Vines were planted on trellis about 40 years ago on slight slopes of calcareous clay soil and undergo extreme temperature changes. Average yield is limited to 5000 Kg/ha. The best bunches have been collected according to quality criteria, loose bunches and small and separated berries together with an optimum maturation.
9-10 months in 60% new American and 40% new Franch oak.
