Product description

DOMINIO BASCONCILLOS - Finca de Altura - 2019 - DO Ribera del Duero - Spain

 
Dominio Basconcillos is located at almost 1000 meters altitude in DO Ribera del Duero in Spain. Ribera del Duero has the most ideal location to produce one of the best Spanish wines. The area is halfway between Madrid and Santander and is one of the fastest growing wine regions in Spain. The natural conditions - such as the relief, the composition of the soil and the climate, all lend themselves perfectly to viticulture.
 
20 years ago José Maria Basconcillos was searching for a special location for a vineyard. He discovered a special place where Benedictine monks originally brought their knowledge in the cultivation of vines and taught how to make wine in the Middle Ages. The 50 hectares estate, which Jose Maria discovered, is an unexpected valley about 1000 meters above sea level, with a unique micro-climate especially well-suited to cultivating grapes for fine wines.

APPELLATION

DO Ribera del Duero - Spain
 

GRAPES

100% Tempranillo
 

TERROIR

Vineyard: Located at 960 mts. altitude
Soil Type: Chalky and stony
Rainy winter with low temperatures, followed by more spring rains, promoted early sprouting and vegetative development with good water reserves. Warm summer with peaks of 38-40ºC and cool nights favored a slow polyphenolic maturation. Harvest in late september early october with mild temperatures for optimal harvesting and a perfect sanitary condition of the grapes.
 

VINIFICATION

We make a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and transport to the winery in small boxes of 12 kilos to maintain maximum respect for the quality of the fruit. Once in the winery, a final selection on the sorting table will ensure the optimal conditions of health and maturity with the subsequent cold pre-fermentation maceration at 5ºC for 5 days. All this to achieve a greater polyphenolic extraction by means of a gentle daily pumping over.
The vineyard's own yeasts carry out alcoholic fermentation spontaneously, and with controlled temperatures between 20-26ºC. Finca de Altura performs malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 20-22ºC and is aged during 8 months in French oak barrels under controlled conditions of humidity and temperature (75% and 12ºC respectively).
 

FOOD PAIRING

Ideal for some game meats (hare or rabbit) even roasted red ones, such as kid goat, suckling lamb or pig; semi-cured cheeses and some blue fish. It admits mushrooms and dishes of salted cod.
 
 
Deep intense ruby color, purple to the rim. Bright and shiny. Fine and elegant with a marked fruity character of fresh summer berries mingled with the subtle hint of spice and toast in the background.
Very pleasant spicy cherry with silky texture and mineral notes, typical of this chalky and stony soils at high altitude. Quite balanced acidity finely wrapped with silky and polished tannins and subtle hints of toast, spices and nuts that fill the palate with pleasant sensations.
 
It is recommended to serve the Dominio Basconcillos Finca de Altura at a temperature between 16 and 18ºC.
