Viña Pedrosa was founded in 1980 by three brothers descended from the Pérez Pascuas. They cultivate about 135 hectares of owned vineyards, of which over 90% are planted with the Tinta Fina grape variety and the rest with Cabernet Sauvignon. This model bodega with a family character boasts exceptionally consistent quality, year after year, and its wines do not only possess a varietal character from the Burgos area, they are also elegant and age very well. Two generations currently work side by side, constantly renewing the entrepreneurial spirit with which they were born.

Appearance

Subtle dark cherry red with a purple trim and very bright colour. Noticeable, very heavy legs.

Nose

Really overflowing with black fruit, salient leather and smoky notes making it very attractive. Very much in the mould of a classic Ribera.

Palate

Noticeable thick, fairly elegant tannin. Delicious. The taste of blackberries and blackcurrant leaps out, along with hints of new oak and cigar box, ending in an enormously long and sweetish finish. Spices present throughout. Will age in a worthy fashion.

Comment

The old Pago de Valtarreña vines are at the origin of this magnificent, authentic “family wine”. The twisted vines, steeped in history and still beautifully preserved today, produce complex, concentrated and delicious fruit that gives us a wine of supreme quality, lovingly aged in barrel for 26 months, resulting in a meaty, ripe, big example with a long life ahead of it. A luxurious wine that takes us to the very heart of Ribera del Duero, to calcareous clay soils, a continental climate and to the reason why these wines captured the attention of the entire world in the nineties. Although we are being somewhat predictable, Castilian lamb is the perfect match for this great ambassador of the Ribera del Duero.
