Alonso del Yerro, Ribera Del Duero 2017


The most emblematic wine from Alonso del Yerro. The character and complexity of Tempranillo, with the freshness and concentration typical of the vintage. Made from a selection of Tempranillo variety grapes in the privileged vineyards of the Santa Marta estate, with a great diversity of soils. Alonso del Yerro is a very aromatic, sweet, fresh and balanced wine. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (10% new).

"The ripe and juicy 2017 Alonso del Yerro was cropped from a challenging and warm vintage, a selection of Tempranillo grapes from their vineyards in the Roa zone of Ribera del Duero that are farmed organically and biodynamically even if the wines are not certified. It's ripe without excess, jammier than the 2016 María I tasted next to it, with a round and full-bodied palate with glossy tannins. A triumph over the adverse conditions, I'd say... It was bottled in July 2019." - 93 point, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
