tasting notes: 

dark cardinal red with plentiful violet tones that indicate excellent longevity. It is intense and highly complex, encompassing fine aromas of ripe black fruits, perfectly balancing spiced flavors and smooth, toasted hardwood notes. A tasty wine, with a generous step and an intense and lasting finish. Good fine tannin structure, with the characteristic elegance and intensity of the finest Matarromera wines, produced using only the best Ribera del Duero grapes.
