San Cucufate Altos del Viso is a fresh and delicate red wine with notes provided by the high altitude of the vineyard and the limestone rock. The limestone notes make this an exceptional wine. It is made from clusters of Tinto Fino grapes from the Altos del Viso plot in Gumiel del Mercado. The air that circulates in this chalky area gives an excellent salinity to very small clusters, with unusually small grapes.
Sight: Cherry red colour with garnet reflections.
Nose: Intense aromas of ripe black fruit, followed by hints of toast and spices over a marked limestone background.
Palate: In the mouth it is full-bodied, powerful and intense. It has a silky and enveloping passage with well-marked but very polished tannins. With a broad, persistent finish and a well-balanced acidity.
APPELLATION OF ORIGIN: Ribera del Duero.
WINEMAKING: Made with the Tinto Fino variety.
AGEING: Slow and gentle ageing of about 16 months in barrels of different uses and foudres of different sizes.
CURIOSITIES: In the middle of the 11th century, the Benefictionos monks built the monastery of San Cucucfate in the vicinity of the estate. The current vineyards were the monastery's farmland in the 11th century. Over the years, the monastery was renamed San Cobate. This is where the name of the winery comes from. Ten centuries later, in 2016, Antonio Vázquez Muñoz-Calero embarked on an exciting project in San Cobate with the aim of making wines that respect the personality of its plots, its soils, its grape variety, Tinto Fino, a classic of Ribera del Duero, giving a discreet role to the wood of its carefully selected barrels so that the terroir and the fruit are the protagonists of these wines.
