del Duero, Spain
2000, Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel
is located in the village of Peñafiel in the heart
of the Ribera del Duero D.O. They are a high quality
producer equipped with the best technology and the most
advanced machinery while keeping with the traditional
local methods of winemaking.
This 100% Tempranillo spent 12 months in French (30%)
and American (70%) oak barrels. Red cherry hue, with
a complex and elegant nose of red fruit, liquorice, toffee,
spices, and balsamic. The medium-bodied wine is smooth
and balanced, with a fine blend of sweet and wood-toasted
tannins. The pleasant finish lingers with hints of red
and black fruits, chocolate, and balsamic in the aftertaste.
Try it with the “Kalamata Olive Tapenade” from our Wines
