£11.00/ 0.75 L btl
A young wine with a short stay in barrel that provides body and structure.
A dark morello cherry colour, almost opaque, this wine has a fine intensity of aroma on the nose with well-ripened fruit (plums), smoky and balsamic notes. A medium-bodied palate, with just enough acidity, it is flavoursome, powerful and ends with a good finish.
After spending 4 months in American and French oak barrels, it rests for 5 months in bottle.

Great Spanish wine
Don't buy it it's mine! Seriously its a great wine, best I have tasted from Spain apart from a wine I can't remember the name of from 30 years ago when I probably knew nothing about wine.
I love Ribera del Duero wines and this has just become my new favorite. very full bodied and perfect on its own or with cheese.. will be buying a lot more of this!
Our all time favourite
We discovered this wonderful wine while on holiday in La Gomera. Consistently good, and always included when we order wine from Vinissimus.

The PradoRey winery cultivates 520 hectares of vineyards, located in the Real Sitio de Ventosilla estate in the east of the Ribera del Duero region. They aim for their wines to express the terroir, the estate, the grapes, and the soil, which are all essential parts of the final result. This Ribera del Duero wine cellar has been a ground-breaking one in many aspects: producing wines in the 'Roble' category, with only a short period of time in oak barrels, when many others produced...
