This is a 100% Tinta del País (Tempranillo) wine, using grapes from their own younger vineyards. A 'Roble', it therefore undergoes a short ageing in wood.
An intense ruby-red colour with hints of dark crimson, it reveals delicate, penetrating aromas on the nose. Rounded, flavoursome and full of fruit expression on the palate.
Aged for 8 months in new French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels, then allowed to rest in bottle for at least 3 months before release.

Good quality mid-range Ribera
Not cheap or an every day wine, but not one to break the bank either. Benefits from a bit of air prior to serving, then delivers a depth and quality that many much more expensive wines would be envious of.

Carmelo Rodero comes from a family with a long history of winemaking in the heart of Ribera del Duero, where his grandparents were founding members of the Pedrosa wine cooperative back in the mid-twentieth century. Later his family moved on from the cooperative and began selling grapes to Vega Sicilia, until in 1990 Carmelo decided it was time to start out with their own winery.
