Variety: Tempranillo and Merlot
Finca Torremilanos sets itself apart drastically from other producers in Ribera del Duero. Torremilanos is the second oldest wine-producing domain after the famous Vega Sicilia. Though founded in 1903, the current generation(s) began with Pilar Pérez Albéniz, who continues the winemaking expedition with both of her sons. Torremilanos was the first Demeter-certified biodynamic winery in the Ribera del Duero appellation, a huge feat from one of the most respected women in the Spanish wine world. This family continues innovation on their own terms with both traditional and creative wines.
This Tempranillo (blended with 5% Merlot) comes from vines 35 years in age. The five different vineyards are strewn with “los cantos,” otherwise known as round river stones. Los Cantos is aged in French oak barrels for sixteen months, a wine with aromatics and structure.
