Tasting Notes

"2017 was an unusually short crop as a result of terrible frost in April 2017, when thermometers reached -10 degrees Celsius in some places. The 2017 Pícaro del Águila Tinto, their entry-level and most approachable red, was seriously affected, of course. They lost some 60% of the volume, but the wine is incredible for the condition of the year. It feels a little more mysterious, not as expressive or open, a bit reductive perhaps, but the aromas are clean and don't show any excess ripeness. They did an amazing job eliminating all the raisins that didn't make it into the fermentation vat, and the extra workload has clearly paid off. The wine has some grip and fine, chalky tannins. 17,025 bottles and 487 magnums produced. It was bottled unfiltered and unfined and with just a little sulfur added in October 2018 after 12 months in oak barrels."

The Producer

Dominio de Aguila

Jorge Monzón is shaking up the way Ribera del Duero’s wines are perceived. Many of those wines are rich, ripe and bold while his are elegant, restrained and extremely terroir expressive. Dominio del Águila was set up in 2010 by Jorge Monzón and partner Isabel Rodero, in the village of La Aguilera. It is a fairly new project in Ribera, but he has some pretty impressive experience under his belt.

Jorge studied viticulture in Bordeaux and Burgundy, his first position was at Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, before moving to Spain where he worked a year at Vega Sicilia. While working with Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro, he identified some old vineyards in the region, whose fruit was at that time sold ending up in the best cuvées of several top producers.

Jorge bought the sites and started making wine from these exceptional old vineyards. Some of the vineyards are over 100 years old, mainly of Tempranillo, with some Blanca del País, Bobal, Garnacha, Albillo and Tempranillo Gris, all are farmed following organic and biodynamic methods. His philosophy, and the resulting wines, demonstrate a harmony between the tradition and modern technical knowledge.
