Tasting Notes

"Lightly oaked in French and American barrels, this pure Tempranillo comes from Sotillo de la Ribera at 850 metres. It’s a spicy, modern-meets-traditional style with fresh acidity and a balsamic note."

95 points - Tim Atkin MW, Nov 2018

"Attractive ripe red-plum, fresh earth and savory complexity, leading to a palate that has a succulent, juicy and fleshy array of ripe cherries, berries and plums. The freshness holds amid ripe tannins. Drink or hold."

92 points - James Suckling, Aug 2018

Best Buy - Peñín Guide 2019

"This polished red is balanced and harmonious, with cocoa, mineral and licorice flavors framing a core of fresh cherry and raspberry fruit. Well-integrated tannins and citrusy acidity keep this lively. Drink now through 2024." - Wine Spectator, April 2018

The Producer

Bodegas Ismael Arroyo

The Bodegas Ismael Arroyo is one of the most traditional and historical cellars from Ribera del Duero. This familiar cellar is located in the province of Burgos, and more specifically in the town called Sotillo de la Ribera.

The cellar was founded in 1979 by Ismael Arroyo when the Designation of Origin (D.O.) didn’t exist yet. In 1982 he, along with others winegrowers and wine-makers, founded the Denomination of Origin Ribera del Duero, which years later became one of the most star-studden wine trails in Spain and all over the world.

Its traditional production method has passed from generation to generation and it is the element that makes the difference in this wines. Its ancient underground cellars, which have natural conditions, and the particular harvest made by hand and with grapes from the proximity have granted a premium quality and a wide recognition.

The cellar is an underground built in the 16th century boasting an approximate 13,000 square feet and it is made of underground galleries excavated out of rock.
