Ribera de Duero has during the last several years been amongst the most attractive and prestigious wine regions in Spain. The region’s unique climate, terroir and very old bush vines has resulted in some of the World’s highest quality wines coming from this elite region with some of the most internationally recognized winemakers.

Our own danish winemaker, David Tofterup, has pushed his creativity to the limits. Taking vines between 60-120 years old and extracting wine qualities worth its weight in gold and creating an outstanding wine collection at a price point that the everyday consumer could afford.

Let us introduce you to AVENTINO.

Winemaking

Grapes come from +80 year old bush vines from some of highest lying vineyards of Ribera del Duero. the grapes were handpicked into small plastic boxes at the optimum stage of ripeness during the second week of october 2011. Gentle de-stemming, crushed, and inoculated with special selected yeast strains. Temperature controlled fermentation in epoxy lined cement tanks of 8.000 kg at 26-28ºC with manual pump over for 25 days. Pressed and racked into new and 1 year old French oak barrels of 225 and 500 liters where it underwent malolactic fermentation and aged for 18 months.

Tasting notes

Deep ruby red color with engaging aromas of ripe black cherrues, blackberry, toasted oak, Asian spice and lavender. On the palate it is dense, layered and succulent. It is balanced with a focus on pure full fruit with a long finish. Will improve with cellaring throughout 2020.
