Tempranillo Castilla y Leon Spain
Dedication to the revival and husbandry of wayward old vineyards are essential to the wines of Bodegas Tridente. There are some forty evocative and inspiring parcels of Tempranillo throughout Castilla y León which contribute fruit, all are superior, Rejón is the oldest and most distinguished, 130 years of age near the hamlet of El Pego. The precious grapes are all hand sorted and hand picked, the best bunches are fermented in small traditional vats and filled to the finest French oak barriques for an extended term of twenty months maturation.
Garnet cherry red. Intensely complex nose, black fruits, dark currants and plum, savoury elements, old spice and mineral notes. A textural, creamy palate of refinement and graceful fruit characters, ripe sweet currants and fleshy, black pommes flavours, fleshy, layered and evolving, its elegant structure and taught framework of oak tannins in support of a poerful, long and lingering finish.
