Details for Alonso del Yerro 2015
Bottle size and vintage
Alonso del Yerro is the winery's flagship, its most continuous and admired wine. It combines intensity and elegance like very few Ribera wines do.
It's made exclusively from Tempranillo grapes grown on vines located at an altitude of over 800 metres and planted back in 1989. The diverse nature of the soils, with a high limestone content as a common factor, confer complexity and character on the wine.
In the winery the grapes are macerated for 25 days and fermentation occurs by means of wild yeasts. Ageing takes place in French oak barrels with just 12% of them new wood.
In appearance it exhibits an attractive and intense cherry colour. On the nose the highlights are the ripe fruit, liquorice, and the spicy and creamy notes derived from the barrel. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fresh but also concentrated. Flowers and the Tempranillo's ripe red fruit merge with some splendid roasted notes to shape up into a balanced and elegant passage, with velvety tannins and a good length, rounded off by refined bitter touches. A profound and intense wine, but not over-oaked, which allows the essence of the Ribera del Duero to be enjoyed.

This is a very pleasant and easy drinking red wine. Nothing particularly different about it so maybe not one I will be buying again immediately as their are so many good wines in this price bracket. Enjoyable but not a standout wine for me.by: Alfredo mendoza (29/12/2018) - Vintage 2014
Uno de mis favoritos de la Ribera del Duero aunque no sea un vino típico de esa zona. Tiene una mezcla de los vinos de Toro y Ribera.by: Jose (07/12/2018) - Vintage 2014

Por debajo de lo esperado
Comienzo plano. Pronto comienza a abrirse en nariz con aromas especiados bien definidos; en cambio, en boca continúa algo áspero e indefinido, sin los esperados recuerdos a frutos rojos. 20 minutos más tarde aparece un potente postgusto a pimienta. Buen vino, pero hay opciones mejores de crianzas en Ribera del Duero.by: LMP (07/11/2017) - Vintage 2013
Un Ribera original
Vino que nunca defrauda. De capa alta, mucha fruta y especias. Toques a madera y recuerdos de regaliz. En boca es amplio y sedoso.
Viñedos Alonso del Yerro
The name Alonso del Yerro is familiar to many of us as a famous winery and well-established among the Ribera del Duero's greats. There's no doubting this, but a fact not so well-known is that it began life back in 2002, when husband and wife Javier Alonso and María del Yerro decided to make their dream of producing fine wines a reality in Roa (Burgos). From then on, their popularity and the quality of their wines have continued on a rapid rise, thanks to exacting standards an...
