Description

Cherry red colour with violet hints. Powerful on the nose, with subtle and pleasant aromas of vanilla and red fruits reflecting its terroir. Its flavour is powerful and fleshy. It is the prelude to an extended life in the bottle.

The sweet tannins and elegant oak flavours bring pleasure to the palate and pair very well with stews and red meat dishes.- Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Balbas Winery was founded in 1777, the same year that work started on the first underground wine cavern marking over 200 years of tradition and four generations dedicated to the noble art of winemaking in the Ribera del Duero. Balbas Winery along with a small group of others created and developed what today is known as the Denomination of Origin of The Ribera del Duero. Our wines illustrate the powerful and elegant characteristics of our terroir and demonstrate the skills of the great wineries of the region.
