D.O. Ribera del Duero / Condado de Oriza
Condado de Oriza Reserva
Condado de Oriza Reserva is made from Tempranillo (Tinta del País) that are carefully selected from 20-year-old vines.
Between 15-16ºC. We recommended decanting or serving half an hour after opening.
Dark ruby red with subtle orange shades. The nose is a complex bouquet of cherries and dried plums combined with balsamic and spicy savoury notes. These intermingle with mocha, toast, caramel and smoke flavours as well as with a hint of pepper. Its palate is a reflection of its nose with additional notes of herbs and leather. The wine displays powerful, but very well integrated tannins, medium acidity and a long-lasting, velvety finish.
A perfect complement to game, grilled beef, lamb chops with aromatic herbs and Castilian stews.
The grapes are carefully selected to undergo a maceration process for five days. Fermentation at a controlled temperature (26-28 ºC) guarantees that the maximum varietal expression is obtained. The wine is then aged for 24 months in American and French oak barrels before bottling. The wine completes its ageing process in the bottle, where it remains for 12 months.
