Conde de San Cristóbal Ribera del Duero Crianza 2019
The estate is comprised from 7 different types of soils & micro- climates: sandy-loam, limestone-loam, clay, loam with layers of marl, sandy-clay, chalky-clay and river alluvial soils. The age of vines varies between 15 and 35 years.
Grapes are carefully classified on the selection table, then a low-revolution destemmer is employed, grapes are consequently transferred to the 22,500 kg fermentation tanks by means of gravity. A cold maceration is carried out at a low temperature (8ºC) for a period of 3-5 days which is followed by the alcoholic fermentation, lasting between 9 and 12 days at controlled temperatures (20-24°C). Finally, the wine undergoes a long maceration of the solids for 15- 20 days.
The handpicked and selected grapes come from the vineyard surrounding our cellar, therefore during harvest the time from the vineyard to the fruit reception is max. 30-40 min and so we avoid oxidation and spontaneous fermentation.
10 to 12 months in French oak barrels from different coopers, with subtle to medium-toast level.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES
- 87 Points
Slightly stalky berry aromas on this wine lead to a firm palate that pulls inward due to dry tannins. Herbal plum and oak -pice flavors lose steam before showing a hint of early oxidation. The wine reverts to dry tannins on a finish with notable oak.
