Torremoron Ribera del Duero 750ML 2011      
Sku: 19855

Bodegas Torremoron is located in Quintanamanvirgo, a tiny village located in the northern heart of the Ribera del Duero. Winemaker Fernando de la Cal produces a traditionally made 100% Tempranillo from his family’s 80-100 year old vines. The vineyards are planted at 2,703 feet to sand with clay and limestone subsoil. The classic continental climate of the Burgos subregion sunny days, cool nights and moderate rainfall results in darker, more concentrated wines than those from its western Ribera del Duero counterparts.

Tasting notes
100% Tempranillo. Torremoron Tinto is a deep cherry red-colored wine. On the palate it is well balanced with notes of jam and youthful fruit. Its finish is smooth and elegant.

Review
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - An excellent bargain, this 100% Tempranillo (80-100-year old vines) was aged completely in stainless steel. Patrick Mata told me that the village from which it emerges has only 95 residents, all of whom are grape farmers! This may be the 'bargain of the year' in my tastings. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of black cherry jam, licorice, blackberries and subtle hints of earth, pepper and meat. Drink this medium to full-bodied, rich, layered red over the next 2-3 years (8/ 2012)

Wine maker notes
Location: The winery and vineyards are located in the town of Quintanamanvirgo, south of Burgos, between the towns of Roa and Guzman. Quintanamanvirgo is a small town with a population of 106 people. The Torremoron winery supports most of the families in this small town.

Vineyards: 500 acres of old Tempranillo vines.

Soil: Limestone and sandy soils that allow the roots to go deep and enjoy good water drainage.

Climate: Continental/Atlantic; hot days and cool nights with moderate rainfall. This climate allows the grapes to ripen during the day, and at night the low temperatures halt the ripening process. The grapes take longer to ripen here than in many other areas in Spain, which results in bigger wines with more structure, color and fruit.
