The Recoletas Winery and Vineyard is situated in the village of Olivares de Duero, in the Spanish province of Valladolid, within the Ribera del Duero wine-growing appellation. The effects of the harsh Castilian climate and the long hours of sun on the limestone soils provide the ideal place for the production of a wine whose quality is recognized throughout the world. The winery can be reached via the iconic Renaissance bridge, constructed over the River Duero, which dates from the 17th Century and joins the villages of Quintanilla de Onésimo and Olivares de Duero. The lands, known as “the Recoletas terroir”, include 116 acres of vineyards planted with the Tempranillo grape. This varietal produces a fruit that is ideally adapted to the particular climate of the area, and provides the aroma and structure of our wines. The estates of El Reloj, La Ladera, La Revuelta and Valdecampaña are located on gently rolling hillsides. The rain that falls on these thirsty lands is scarce, the sun shines on the valleys for long hours and the morning mists provide a welcome source of added humidity. The extreme climate endured by the vineyards, with dry summers and long winters, and the sharp disparities in temperature, result in grapes that mature harmoniously and full of color. Recoletas is committed to obtaining the highest quality, and this begins with the gathering of the grapes. Strict measures are taken to ascertain the level of the grapes’ maturity in order to establish when to start picking. The vineyards ensure a production sufficient for obtaining about 200,000 bottles from plants treated with the greatest care, and with regard for the environment. The harvest is completed by hand and the grapes are transported in perforated, stackable 45-pound boxes, ensuring that they arrive at the winery in perfect condition. Once in the winery, the best grapes are selected manually, bunch by bunch, on the sorting table. Those that fail to reach our strict standards of quality are rejected.

Tasting Notes

- Bouquet: Big and complex, as corresponds to a wine that remained more than 22 months in an oak cask. It is wide and suggestive. With many variations while it is poured in the glass and oxygenates. Over a slight ripe fruit core we can find: Tintas, spices and tars with a mineral hint, followed by cacao and some toffee essences over a very well heated oak. - Mouth: It is very vigorous, highly vital, with tannins but without being rough, extraordinaryly acidity-alcohol balanced, long and meaty.

Tasting Notes

- Colour: Intense morello cherry red, powerful and with a significant depth. The tile and brick nuances are not detected in the edges so far, although the wine�s main colour may be perceived. A very abundant leg generously recovers the glass�s walls. Clean, bright and vital. - Bouquet: big and clean nose, with absence of nuances or reduction shades, where the wood is very harmonious and respectful with the wine�s attributes by making contributions and not interferences. One can easily appreciate toasty, caramel, toffee and eucalyptus signs, with some spicy taste on a core of nuts and mature and over-mature varietal fruit. - Mouth: Wide, bodied, big and meaty but with structural finesse. Balanced sensations. Lengthy, deep and per
