Dehesa de los Canónigos - Ribera del Duero 'Solideo' Reserva 2017
Solideo is the reserve wine of Dehesa de los Canónigos and was revived with the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the winery, in 2014. Its name means ‘Only before God’, also used to designate a silk cap that the Pope, bishops and some people from the clergy usually wear to cover their heads. A reference to the ecclesiastical origins of the winery.
A wine that is reserved only for exceptional harvests. A wine with a long life that represents elegance with capital letters.
The grapes with which Solideo is made come from vines that are more than 80 years old, located in gravel soil, according to the traditional system of planting bush vines with very low yields. It is made with 85% Tempranillo, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Albillo Mayor and remains in barrels for 24 months, first in American oak of one and two years of age and the last four months in new French oak.
