Product Overview

The 2019 Bodegas Barco de Piedra Ribera del Duero is a single-vineyard Tempranillo with a vinification philosophy that relies on the natural characteristics of the region rather than excessive "make up" from excess oak or jammy extraction. Black raspberry and violet aromas with rose petal, blueberry and mineral notes make this wine a delight to drink. Barco de Piedra is one of the prettiest examples of the elegance and structure of Ribera del Duero, one of the great wine regions of the world. The winery's name refers to the nickname of the Castle of Peñafiel, the "stone ship" fortress constructed in the 10th century that still stands guard over the Valladolid province.

Varietal Composition: 100% Tempranillo
Appellation: Ribera del Duero DO
Aging: 4 months in 85% French and 15% American oak barrels that are all 3 years old

91 Points - Vinous
"Inky ruby. Oak-spiced cherry-vanilla and dark berry scents and hints of coconut and cracked pepper. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering black currant, cherry preserve and bitter chocolate flavors and a touch of licorice. Youthfully chewy tannins lend grip to a long, spicy finish that leaves a sweet dark fruit preserve note behind. Raised in a combination of 85% French and 15% American oak." -JR, Feb/2021
