This superb Ribera del Duero is perfect for drinking. It is a charming Spaniard who, thanks to its finesse and elegance, seduces immediately. It can easily compete with the well-known, expensive plants in its region. The vines at around 1,000 m above sea level produce grapes of genuinely exceptional quality. The result is simply terrific: a new fixed star!

VIÑA MAGNA Ribera del Duero Crianza | Dominio Basconcillos
10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Aged 15 Months in French and American Oak
Its color is very dense, almost black. It is very profound, ripe fruity, and with complex subtlety to the nose. The basis is formed by dark fruit aromas paired with spices, leather, licorice, fine wood, and toasted notes. A touch of mineral and balsamic notes complete the olfactory picture. In the mouth, it presents itself as massive, powerfully structured, but still very smooth and elegant. The fully ripe and super-fine tannins are so well interwoven and ground to perfection that the palate can hardly resist. This great wine is an unbelievable discovery and also meets high standards. Temperamental and delicate at the same time, complex and profound. An extremely noble Ribera del Duero in a class of its own!
