Viña Sastre Pesus 2014

Viña Sastre Pesus

The family wine, made only in the finest years. Hand harvested by only the family members, 2,000 bottles produced from some of the oldest parcels of Tempranillo in Pago de Santa Cruz blended with cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and petit verdot. One of Spain’s rarest treasures.

Vinification After fermentation in a special stainless steel tank built to its specs the wine was transferred into new French oak. It was racked further into new oak three times and aged for a total of 24 months in the oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes Full-bodied, ripe, concentrated and intense, a luxurious Ribera del Duero in all senses. Tastes of silky dark fruit, exotic black truffles, and grilled lamb.
