Atauta's high altitude and easterly location within Ribera del Duero ensures that this is a fine and elegant expression of Tempranillo (Tinto Fino).
Rich aromas of black cherry, plum and smoky, mocha notes. Intense, ripe fruit flavours combine with a darker, more brooding, wild character and hints of garrigue which open up in the glass. Chewy with ample ripe tannins, but also a freshness, brightness and elegance. Approachable now but should age for 5 years or more.
The 100% Tinto Fino grapes were sourced from predominantly pre-phylloxera vines over 100 years old. The vines were gobelet pruned, and the grapes were harvested between the end of September and mid-October. After destemming and pressing, fermentation was carried out in stainless steel, concrete and French oak. Maceration took 13 days, and the wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels for 17 months. The wine was bottled unfiltered.
