Bodegas Epifanio Rivera, Ribera del Duero Erial 2016
The Rivera-Aparicio family has been growing grapes and making wine in Pesquera del Duero for more than 5 generations. The family owns 20 hectares of vineyards located in what it is arguably one of the best terroirs in the Ribera del Duero - the south facing slopes located on the west part of Pesquera del Duero.
A full-bodied wine with great intensity on the nose offering blackberries, black licorice and mineral undertones. The oak is very well integrated with the fruit adding very fine vanilla, toasty and spicy aromas. Epifanio is concentrated and well structured with ripe tannins and great acidity balancing the finish. It has finesse and balance that is hard to find in Ribera del Duero.
