Tasting Notes

Bright aromas of cassis, redcurrant and violet. The palate is ripe and full with forest fruits, toasty oak and liquorice notes.

Producer details

Rippa Dorii is an Ontañón Family project in Ribera del Duero. Their vineyards are located in the Fuentecén area, in the heart of the Ribera region, bathed by the Duero and its tributary the Riaza river.
Here altitudes reach over 900 metres, and the climate is harsh, with irregular rain, uncertain frosts, and short and extremely hot summers.
Their Ribera del Duero wines are produced solely from the Tempranillo grape, also known in the region as Tinto Fino or Tinta del Pais.
Rippa Dorii is the latin form of ‘Ribera del Duero’ - inspiration for the name and label came from the nearby 13th century chapel of Santa Maria de Ripa Dorii, in Torrecilla de la Abadesa.

In the vineyard

The Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo) vines are over 15yrs of age, and grow in a number of sites near Fuentecén.

In the winery

After a first selection of grapes in the vineyard, they undergo a pre-fermentation maceration for 3 days. Alcoholic fermenation takes over 14 days at 21- 23ºC. Malolactic fermentation is induced duing the latter stage of the alcoholic fermentation. The wine then matures for 7 months in new oak - 40% American, and 60% French with varying levels of toast.

Food Recommendations

Hearty venison casserole.

In the press

Tim Atkin MW - “Rubén Pérez uses a 60/40 mix of French and American wood on this serious, well-structured Crianza, rather than the Spanish oak that features on his more expensive wine, Salomón. Intensely perfumed, fleshy and spicy, with layers of fennel, black fig and bramble and a smooth, well-upholstered finish. Superb value."
