2020 Bela Ribera del Duero
High intensity cherry-red cherry color with purple notes in the boarder. Aromatic complexity where we find floral notes and red fruit such as currant, raspberry, etc.. All this softened and complemented by fine notes of sweet spices and the nuances of the wood from the barrel (vanilla and clove).It is a wine of passage marked by a tasty tannin and with personality, the end of mouth takes us to a long and fruity aftertaste with a final minerality that confers elegance and finesse.

This has a pretty nose of pink peppercorns, dried violets, blueberries and licorice. Medium-bodied, vibrant and fresh with layers of purple fruit and flowers, supported by fine-grained tannins. Vegan. Drink now or hold.

Bela is CVNE’s project in Ribera del Duero, based on 182 acres of vines in the sand- and clay-loam soils of Villalba and another 22 acres in small parcels in the highlands around Moradillo de Roa (at an altitude of 3,280 feet), where the ground is packed with stones. The wine is dark and satisfying, a black robe of fruit cloaking the gentle tannins. There’s black-currant jam and lingonberry flavor in a completely dry, savory structure, giving the wine an austere impression at first. As it settles in, there’s plenty of room for grilled lamb, or coffee-rubbed barbecue.

This ruby-colored wine has a nose of brambly berries, thyme and lavender. Dark chocolate and anise play backup to flavors of black cherry, blackberry and a hint of violet. Fluid tannins are there all along but linger on the palate, with a faint hint of strawberry jam.
