Bodegas Resalte | Expresión
VINTAGE | 2011
REGION | Ribera del Duero
VARIETIES | Tempranillo from vineyards of more than 40 years old. These are all small plots of carefully cultivated bush vines with very low yields of great quality, a powerful bouquet and an exceptional concentration.
VINIFICATION AND AGING | Ages in 90% French, 10% American new oak from the best cooperages for 18 months. Periodical racking helps clean and oxygenate the wine for enhanced complexity and harmony.
TASTING NOTES | The wine exhibits a deep dark red color with a blue rim that is clean and bright. The aroma is very expressive, ripe fruit, black currant, black berries, liquorice and cocoa. The palate is concentrated and silky, balanced, fresh, with polished, ripe tannins. Long lasting with good depth of flavors.
Limited production wine made only in the best vintages with the selection of very old vineyards!
