2014 Arrocal, Ribera del Duero, Crianza Meloso
One of Spain's top red wine–producing regions, Ribera del Duero is located in the northwest of the country, about 160km north of Madrid or Ribera del Duero 125 km south-west of Rioja.

The region benefits from a Mediterranean climate, with a continental influence and an extreme nature; it boasts dry summers, long and harsh winters, low rainfall (400-500 mm/year average) and a large difference in temperatures throughout the year (from -20°C to 42°C ).
This results in grapes that are small in size, with thick skins, that have benefited from an optimal slow and late ripening period leading to concentrated flavours.

Bodega Arrocal is a family owned winery, run by Rosa Arroyo and Moisés Calvo, who are native to the area.

AGE OF THE VINEYARD: 30 years. ALTITUDE: 830 meters sea level.
VARIETY: 100% Tinto Fino. (Tempranillo)

Aromas and flavours of black and forest fruits - blueberries, blackberries and plums, with spicy touches such as vanilla, nutmeg and cloves.

Harmonious and velvety tannins, which provide structure and complexity.
