Low production vineyards, selected in the area of the Corcos Moor and surroundings, in the towns of Moradillo de Roa, Fuentemolinos and Castrillo de la Vega. Sandy loam soils with rolled edge on the surface and layers of clay in depth.
Manual harvest in October. Pick up and transfer to warehouse in small trailers.
Fermentation and maceration in 15.000 kg tanks, at 28ºC for 3 weeks, with minimal intervention and comeback. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
6 months in French, American and Eastern European oak barrels of various uses.
Visual: cherry red, with Violet notes on the edging characteristic of his youth.
Nose: notes of black fruits, mainly blackberries, acompa adas with fresh tones of typical Arom tic plants of monte bajo. In the end leaves a pleasant memory of strawberry yogurt.
Palate: it stands out for its freshness and its great intensity. With a sweet and unctuous entrance, it is prolonged with a good structure that fits all its route. Very persistent and with a slight final tanicity characteristic of Tempranillo.
When, in 2004, we began to explore in search of the wine regions with the most potential in Spain, we discovered the Corcos wasteland, a difficult but privileged area for viticulture, at more than 900 meters of altitude in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. There, we take on the challenge of creating honest wines with the land from which they come, looking for the essence of high-rise vineyards full of freshness and elegance.
In Bodegas Bardos we produce wines by hand, trying to reflect the landscape and the Castilian climate, a place where only the bravest dare to work the Earth in the most extreme conditions, where the cold shrinks the bones, the wind cuts the flesh and the sun burns the skin. A place only suitable for authentic “bards” of wine, our winemakers.
