Dominio del Águila 'Picaro del Aguila Tinto' Vinas Viejas, Spain 2021

Jorge Monzon Pascual gained valuable experience interning at Domaine de la Romanée-Conti at a young age. His time there developed his appreciation for terroir. He then moved on to Vega Sicilia for a few years, where he developed a passion for indigenous Spanish grape varieties.

The Tinto counterpart to the Pícaro Clarete is a co-fermented blend of Tempranillo with Albillo, Garnacha, and Bobal – fruit strictly selected from parcels chosen for their quality and response to vintage conditions. In warmer years, cooler sites are favored, and warmer sites are utilized in cooler vintages. All these sites have gravel soils and heavier clay, which in a dry climate like Ribera del Duero prevents vine stress and promotes an even and simultaneous ripening of fruit and stems – vitally important for whole-cluster, natural fermentations. 

This wine has a lively aroma of black and red fruits with hints of woodsmoke and violets. When tasted, it presents a combination of strong black fruit and refreshing notes. The finish is smooth and has a polished tannic structure, leaving a pleasingly silky texture. - Kimberly
