A pretty fruit defined by this blood side, a juicy, fruity, spicy and fresh nose. It remains well put together and coherent.
Nice style, unlike the bodybuilding wines so common in this appellation.

Dominio del Aguila
Picaro del Aguila 2017
Ribera del Duero DO
Espagne - Castilla y Leon
If we wanted to summarize the Ribera del Duero in a few lines we could say: first there was Vega Sicilia then came Pesquera and Peter Sissieck from Dominio de Pingus who enshrined the preeminence of Tempranillo in the region. Now it will also be necessary to count on Jorge Monzón of the Dominio del Aguila estate who is starting a new turn for the Ribera with his vineyards of old vines often pre-phylloxera planted at an altitude of 830-880 meters in the region of Aguilera.
Although mostly planted with tempranillo (tinta del pais), the vineyards are in fact planted with cariñena (carignan), blanca del pais, garnacha, bobal for the reds and bruñal, albilo major, moscatel and malvasia for the whites. And Jorge Monzón plays with all these varieties to produce a range of wines, reds, rosés and whites. Rarely seen in the Ribera del Duero, which focuses mainly on extracted and woody reds, the opposite of Jorge Monzón's wines. The viticulture is organic and the treatments are mainly carried out with plants and algae. The winery is not trivial either, because Jorge and Isabel, his wife, work in an old restored 17th century farmhouse with a 15th century cellar.
95% tempranillo (Tinta del Pais), 5% grenache noir, bobal and albillo mayor.
A pretty fruit defined by this blood side, a juicy, fruity, spicy and fresh nose. Wild black fruit with a very garrigue aspect. The juice is of quality.
