Five reasons we are excited about Ribera del Duero and its environs
- Aalto, Hacienda Monasterio and Quinta Sardonia are making their finest, most elegant wines to date
- We have a crew of young, innovative winemakers that are new to our portfolio: Olivier Rivière in DO Arlanza (Rioja too!), Alvar de Dios in DO Toro, the relatively recent addition of Dominio del Àguila under Jorge Monzón in DO Ribera del Duero and Jérôme Bougnaud’s new project, Galia
- We have more Clarete!
- And more Albillo!
- As well as more stems, native fermentations, co-fermentations and indigenous varieties
We are not alone in our excitement for these growers. Here is a recap of the recent press from The Wine Advocate #221.
