This winery from the Ribera del Duero region of Spain, is located in the small town of Quintanamanvirgo, South of Burgos, between the towns of Roa and Guzman. Quintanamanvirgo has a population of 106 people and the Torremoron winery supports most of the families in the small town.
It is made from 100% Tempranillo and the vines range from 60 to 120 years in age. The bouquet on this young Ribera shows hints of wild berry, cherry, plum, wet stone, mineral ,chalk, clay, and cacao powder. On the palate flavors of black cherry, semi-sweet cacao powder, earthy clay, and blackberry notes all grace the palate in a balanced and complex effort. Wet stone, earth, and mineral also make their presence known on the palate as the wine finishes dry with some chalky but fashionable tannin. I dig this wine and for the price it's really tough to beat! Balanced and sharp acidity helps this wine pair well with food and I highly recommend it with pizza, which is what I just tasted it with. 88-89 points
