D.O Ribera del Duero 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) Crianza
Every Chef we’ve shown this wine to wants to have it no matter what’s in the bottle. Yet another supremely creative label from the Casa Rojo Wine Gurus stable, has chefs imagining all sorts of amazing porcine food pairings to present alongside Alexander and his bionic leg which has clearly been lost to the Ham Factory and is now probably sitting on the diner’s plate in some tantilising new shape and form. Thankfully what is inside the bottle more than does justice to the awesome label.
The multi award winning Alexander VS The Ham Factory is 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) Crianza has spent 20 months ageing in American and French Oak Barrels and at least 6 months in the bottle. He was born from the best vineyards of Páramo del Duero, in Pesquera from 25 year old vines. Located at 950 meters of altitude, these vineyards of Tinto Fino grapes mark the viticulture and the style of this singular Ribera del Duero 2013
A rich, carmine-red colour in the glass, it is intense and concentrated. The nose shows notes of liquorice, toasted oak and developed cherry and dark fruit; the palate is powerful, wide and long with a mineral note backing the fruit and spice.
