2015 Sei Solo Ribera del Duero - 93 PTS - DECANTER

decanter logo 250"A family project by Javier Zaccagnini, of Aalto and Ossian fame, and his son Michael. Year after year, this wine gains more delicacy without becoming lighter, with a remarkable distinctiveness, in a style that looks more for fine texture than fruitiness. Made to pass the test of time. An extremely interesting style, worth following. One of the most Burgundian Riberas. Drink 2020-2035"

2018 Sei Solo Ribera del Duero - 93 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Sei Solo source this top red from two parcels - Barroso and Acos - in the celebrated village of La Horra, aged between 60 and 90 years' old. It's a rich, almost ferrous style with plenty of grip and concentration, understated oak sweetness from 600-litre barrels and the focus and freshness of the 2018 vintage, provided the yields were kept low, as they were here. 2023-30"

2018 Sei Solo Ribera del Duero - 96 PTS - SJ

somm journal purple logo"Vines as old as 60-90 years are used for this vibrant 100% Tempranillo. Fermented in stainless steel and aged for 20 months in neutral, 600-liter big barrels, the wine is named for Bach’s six solos for violin. Dynamic and muscular, with graphite-laden, firm tannins, a chorus of black plum, blackberries, and a true “soil” component play on our heart strings. Rich, igniting the mineral soils of the region, its music is illuminating, but its sense of place is down to earth."
