Denomination of Origin: Ribera Del Duero
Vineyard: Campos Góticos
Grape Varieties: 100% Tempranillo
Ageing: 16 months in French oak
Tasting Notes: The grapes from "La Joya" are quite resistant to oxidation, producing a beautiful ruby colour with bluish rims as well as a very sweet and round tannin. A long evolution in the glass reveals layers of ripe fruit, well assembled with exotic spices. Complex, round and velvety with a prolonged aftertaste, this wine represents the true "joya" (Spanish word meaning "jewel").
Food Match: Ideal companion for lamb, beef and game, but also matches well with spicy food.
