Altos de Tamaron red wine is made from Tempranillo (Tinta del País) that are carefully selected from 20-year-old vines at Olmedillo de Roa’s surrounding lands and villages in Burgos.
In the last 30 years, the Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero has emerged to challenge the crown of Spain’s greatest wine region; Rioja. Located in Spain’s northern plateau, this region covers four Castile and León provinces – Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. But, despite what its name may suggest, Ribera del Duero does not cover all of the villages along the River Duero. Ribera del Duero was granted its Denominación de Origen status in 1982 and today it has over 250 wineries and over 22,000 ha of vineyards. Most of Ribera del Duero’s production is red wine and only a moderate amount of rosé is produced. No white wines are permitted under the D.O. yet, but they will be soon. The region is characterised by its largely flat, rocky terrain.
Deep cherry red with touches of violet. This wine exhibits aromas of black fruits, cocoa, tobacco leaves and spices. Creamy and wrapping palate with a long and elegant aftertaste.
The perfect complement to traditional roast suckling pig, stews and game.
The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked. Cold maceration takes place for two days before the actual fermentation at a controlled temperature between 24 and 26ºC that maximises the variety's maximum aromatic potential. The wine is then aged for 14 months in new American oak barrels before bottling. Finally, after bottling, it finishes its ageing process in our cellars for another 9 months.
