K&L Notes

Based in the village of Peñafiel, at the eastern edge of the Valladolid province's famed "Golden Mile" along the N-122, Pinna Fidelis produces richly fruited, sumptuous Ribera del Duero wines based on tinto fino grown in primarily calcareous clay parcels at altitudes up to 900 meters above sea level. The vendimia seleccionada comes primarily from their vineyards located south of the Duero river, in soils that have a high proportion limestone. Following a rather long fermentation and post fermentative maceration period of around 40 days, the wine is then racked to primarily new barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation, and then finishes ageing for another 16 months in barrel.

    Full bodied, generously fruited and perfectly balanced with meaty, savory notes, this is a wonderful Ribera del Duero that has entered its prime drinking window. It is grown in 30-year-old vineyards, primarily those at altitude on the south side of the Duero river, in clay and stony soils that contain large amounts of limestone. This produces later ripening fruit, with balanced levels of acidity that enable improvement with bottle age. Pair this with grilled lamb chops and some crisp, Hasselback potatoes topped with chopped rosemary for a delicious meal and memorable food and wine match.
