1076 Ribera del Duero Tinto
Milsetentayseis
Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

1076 is the elevation in meters, the highest vineyards in the D.O. The wine is produced from a recently restored vineyard where ancestral vines over 100 years old grow harmoniously together with new, indigenous plantings in varied soils comprised of red clay, sand and mineral deposits of quartz, mica, and feldspar.

Coming from a unique landscape, extreme altitude and mineral-rich soil, 1076 Tinto is a bold wine with a distinct character designed to evolve over time. Its freshness and intensely fruity expression are representative of a modern style, in search of elegance, smoothness and balance. Very deep cherry color with complex and expressive aromas of spice, minerals and black fruits. It is full-bodied, long and has great length.

2018 Milsetentayseis Ribera del Duero Tinto - 95 PTS - VINOUS

2018 Milsetentayseis Ribera del Duero Tinto - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Inky violet. Potent aromas of cassis, cherry preserves, incense and potpourri, plus oak spice and mineral topnotes. Alluringly sweet and concentrated, with a spine of smoky minerality supporting intense flavors of dark berry liqueur, bitter chocolate, cola and candied lavender. Youthful, slow-building tannins add shape and grip to an impressively long, juicy finish that echoes the dark berry and floral notes. - Josh Raynolds."

guia penin logo"The wine is deep cherry in color exhibiting complex, expressive aromas. Its minerality comes from the soil, the black fruit from the Tempranillo and the spice from a sometime in oak. The combination leads to a full body that finishes with great length.
