Tempranillo Crianza Martín Berdugo, D.O. Ribera del Duero

The fruit was picked and delivered to the winery in minutes where it underwent a tumultous fermentation at 25°C for 10 days. This was followed by a malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks of 15-20 days. It then spent 12 months in 225 liter barriques of mainly new oak, 90% American and the rest French.
Our Crianza spent 12 months in bottle before its release, thus enhancing the roundness and balance of its fruit, soft tannins and fresh acidity. Its aroma of soft red berries and summer fruit is corroborated precisely in the mouth, leading to a clean, lingering aftertaste.
