Dominio del Aguila Pícaro del Águila Viñas Viejas Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2016

$32.99

Dominio del andAacute;guila's Picaro Clarete is perhaps better thought of as a very light red wine rather than a deeply colored rosandeacute;.andnbsp;Comparing it to Provence rosandeacute; misses the point; instead of being thirst quenching on a hot summer day, it is vinous and complex and well suited to a variety of foods.andnbsp;This Clarete is a blend of Albillo and Tempranillo that are co-fermented on the skins for 2 days before going into barrels where it then ages for a full year. The nose is redolent with blood orange and berry fruit with just a touch of roses and spice. There are whispery tannins on the palate with lifted acidity; it is quite suave for a pink wine and very well balanced without any residual sugar. This would be perfect for a platter of charcuterie, grilled lamb sausage, roasted veggies, or slightly spicy food.

Deep color. Almost inky. Savage aromas and flavors. Pure blackberries and blueberries. Textural palate and tannins, just that right amount of scratchiness. #tempranillo #riberadelduero

This outstanding clarete by Jorge Monzón of Dominio del Águila has emerged as the benchmark for the revival of Clarete. Sourced from old vineyards in La Aguilera, it is a blend of approximately 35% Tempranillo, 35% Albillo and other red and white grapes such as Bobal, Bruñal, Garnacha and Pirulés, all co-planted and fermented together. Complex, vibrant, just perfect to spend a hot summer afternoon.
