The wine

Pícaro del Águila Tinto is produced with grapes from vines between 35 and 70 years old growing in red clay soils at an altitude of 900 metres. Tempranillo is the main grape used but it is rounded off with small amounts of varieties such as Albillo, Grenache or Bobal – all grown using organic agriculture methods. The soil, altitude and orientation of the vineyards give the wine an interesting rustic touch and added freshness, although it is also particularly noted for being a balanced and accessible red wine, ready for enjoying young when its fruity sensations are at their best.

What does this wine taste like?

Pícaro del Águila Tinto is a wine reminiscent of traditional Ribera wines: fresh and intense, with a perfect balance between fruit and ageing. With a splendid cherry-red colour and clear nose, it offers splendid aromas of wild fruit and hints of mint and spices. It is juicy and pleasantly tannic in the mouth, and fresh enough to flow freely with no sensation of heaviness. Its fruitiness, full of flavours of the forest and lactic touches, delights the palate. Despite a notable complexity, it is easily interpretable and leaves a lingering and rounded finish.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The juicy, velvety and aromatic red 2020 Pícaro del Águila Tinto is fine-boned and quite faithfully represents what they want to express with this cuvée; it's very tasty and has some chalkiness (perhaps through less ripeness than in years like 2018) with 14% alcohol and mellow acidity. The nose reveals some Côte-Rôtie-like notes of smoked meat and violets. 2020 delivered a good crop of healthy grapes that produced the finest wine to date for this bottling. This is superb, elegant and powerful, with everything in place (seems to be the signature of 2020) and perfectly integrated oak. 71,382 bottles and 1,979 magnums produced. It was bottled in September 2021.

The whole unstemmed bunches of grapes are mixed together and trampled by foot before undergoing a long process of maceration and fermentation following long-standing traditional winemaking methods. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is then left to age for about 15 months in oak barrels.
