Dominio del Aguila Reserva 2018 from 8wines

SKU: 4023 Category:


Cellar for 10-12 years. It can benefit from decanting. Dominio del Aguila was founded by Jorge Monzon and his wife Isabel Rodero who decided to combine their enthusiasm to create high quality wines. The estate has 30 hectares of very old organically grown vineyards. Jorge, who comes from a family of winegrowers, studied viticulture and oenology in Bordeaux and Burgundy and worked at the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Grupo Vega Sicilia and Bodegas Arzuaga. Tempranillo is the main protagonist in their vineyards, but there are also other native varieties such as Bobal, Garnacha, and Albillo. The Reserva comes from a blend of Tempranillo, Blanca del Pais, Garnacha, and Bobal from old high-altitude vineyards, between 800 and 900 meters above sea level, in the municipality of La Aguilera. Grapes are harvested with a rigorous selection of the best bunches and then fermented with native yeasts in cement vats. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 35 months and then bottled without clarifying or filtering. This elegant red is expressive, complex, and fresh. On the nose, it surprises with pleasant aromas of ripe red and black fruit and notes of spontaneous herbs. In the mouth, it shows intensity and structure while having a silky consistency. The fruity notes are combined with juicy tannins and a long and persistent finish. It is ready to be enjoyed now but can also be left in the cellar for a little longer. Have it with red meat or slow roast leg of lamb.
