Cair Ribera del Duero Seleccion La Aguilera

Cair Ribera del Duero Seleccion La Aguilera

Cherry red colour, maintaining violet tones to the rim. On the nose it is complex, highlighting the ripe black fruit, floral, balsamic and scrub notes. Great balance between the primary aromas of earth and spicy aromas. The fruit and floral touches are typical of the La Aguilera area due to the altitude and the location of the vineyards between the mountains of the Castilian plateau, facilitating good ripening and providing great freshness and complexity. In the mouth it is tasty and powerful, appearing fruity, with freshness, an elegant tannin and a great final persistence.

The Dominio de Cair winery, a brand of Bodega Luis Cañas, produces Cair Selección La Aguilera from 40 to 50-year-old vineyards located at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level, in a pristine area surrounded by forests, in the very heart of the DO Ribera del Duero.

After a meticulous selection, the Tempranillo grapes of this Spanish red wine were harvested by hand and selected again in the cellar. The grapes underwent a cold-maceration in order to extract colour and aromas, and a subsequent alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Malolactic fermentation took place in new French and American oak barrels (50% - 50%), where this Crianza red wine was subsequently aged for 14 months.

Finally, Cair was bottled and aged in the for a further 12 months before its release.
