Cruz of Alba Fuentelum Reserve
Coming from the sandiest area of the Finca Los Hoyales vineyard, Cruz of Alba Reserve is an elegant and silky Tempranillo with a modern cut. Balanced and complex, it represents the essence of a new style in the Ribera del Duero.
After fermentation at a controlled temperature, this wine remained in French oak barrels for 20 months, using the system of thirds: 1/3 new barrels, 1/3 in one-year barrels, and 1/3 in second-year barrels. Subsequently it remained resting for several months in the bottle before going on the market.
The Cruz of Alba Fuentelum reserve has an intense red color, and marked layer. Elegant and powerful nose, with ripe, spicy and balsamic sensations, noble and integrated wood. In the mouth it is tasty, with balanced acidity that integrates with subtlety, the good structure and meatiness, the elegant and silky tannin, the memories of the barrel, leaving us a long and tasty finish.
16-18oC, it goes perfectly with cured cheeses, white and red meats, game dishes and all kinds of sausages.
