The 2002 vintage in Ribera del Duero was indeed 'Nature's Favourite', demonstrating one of the greatest expressions of climate influence on winemaking.

The result? A wine manifesting majestic integration of fruit intensity, enriched by prominent tertiary notes after years of bottle aging. Blackberries and plums jostle playfully amid tobacco, leather, and a touch of clove. Each sip lingers long after, tempting the palate for another taste.
