Preludio de Sei Solo Ribera del Duero
Sei Solo Bodegas y Vinedos
Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

The grapes for this wine come vineyards in the villages of La Horra, Gumiel de Izan and Moradillo from 12 to 80 year-old vines.

Displaying a good vibrant deep cherry red color with fragrant, clear notes of cherry drop and violet there is a beautifully unadorned yet brooding quality to this; it feels deep, vinous and vibrant, flecked with bright red fruit notes, sweet earth and a darker, more spiced character on the finish.

Vinification
The wines are fermented in stainless steel deposits of different sizes, to adapt the tanks to the vineyards, allowing for a total separation by plots. Gentle pumping over is performed to maintain freshness and purity and avoid over extraction of the tannins in order to gain elegance and finesse. After alcoholic fermentation the wines are racked to two-year-old barrels to perform malolactic at low temperature. This is a slow process that takes several months and results in further finesse and a very personal style for the wines. Once the malolactic is finished the wines are racked to 228, 300, 500 and 600 liter barrels. The aging lasts for 17 months.

tasting panel logo"Graphite and minerality take charge of this dynamic 100% Tempranillo from vines ranging between 20 and 80 years old. Juicy blackberry soon emerge and blue floral notes grab the tongue, part of the concentrated array of dried fruits and flora. Elegant to the core."
