Sei Solo Ribera del Duero

Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

Named after Bach's six solos for violin, Sei Solo represents Javier Zaccagnini's vision of elegant, hightoned Ribera del Duero from the powerful, mineral soils of La Horra and the top vineyards of Barroso and Acos that are planted with old vines of 60 to 90 years old.

Displaying wonderful clarity of fruit and excellent transparency to the multi-layered flavors, there is no new oak influence on this at all, resulting in a wine that has nothing to hide behind. Deft tannins support a taut, mineral, dark fruited wine that, while tight knit and brooding is tremendously refined and vital and not at all tiring to drink. A Ribera built on elegance, refinement and nuance that promises great things for the future. A star is born.

Wine Type
Red
Varietal(s)
100% Tempranillo
Age of vines
Average 60 years
Vinification
Fermented in stainless steel tanks of small capacity, adapted to the size of every vineyard, allowing to do individual fermentation for every different plot.
Short and careful pumping over, never reaching high temperatures to respect the fruit and avoid over extraction of the tannins, gaining the full potential of elegance and finesse of the old vines. After alcoholic fermentation the wines are racked to two-year-old French barrels to undergo malolactic at low temperature ( less than 14 degrees C) . This process takes several months. When malolactic is finished, the wines are racked to 600 liter big barrels of French oak, which are not new to avoid a loss of balance and style of the wines. Aging in barrels for 20 months.
Production
675 (9-liter cases)

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"

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"
