Tended in sandy and limestone soil at 824 m (2,703 ft) elevation. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for three months before filtration and bottling.

Fresh black and blue fruit aromas are lifted and sharpened by a peppey note and a suggestion of smoky minerals. Vibrant and focused on the palate, offering intense boysenberry and cassis flavors that put on weight with aeration. Seamless and expressive, with no rough edges and a long, gently tannic finish that echoes the blueberry note.

About the producer
Torremorón, made in the small town of Quintanamanvirgo, is a great example of an artisanal, handcrafted wine rather than a commercial wine with no personality or soul. Just west of the villages of Anguix and La Horra and north of Pedrosa de Duero and Roa, Quintanamanvirgo is well situated in the north central area of Ribera. Many of Ribera's top bodegas farm vineyards here in the alluvial, sandy and clay-heavy soils in vineyard sites that are optimally located at high altitude. Torremorón is crafted in this small village (population: 94) whose people are very proud of their common wine heritage; everyone in town works for the winery. Quintanamanvirgo has two businesses: the bar and the winery. If you ever want to experience and taste the authentic personality of Ribera del Duero, head directly for this town and ask for Fernando de la Cal. When you meet him, ask him to show you his vineyards and his family cave where wine was made in the 1800's.

This is one of the most intense, pure and bright Tempranillo wines you'll ever taste. It is made from vines planted from 1914 - 1934, which produce grapes with unmistakably pronounced concentration and complexity! An incredible value, this wine has a consistent high quality every vintage.
