2018 dominio aguila, ribera del duero, canta perdiz
Why We're Buying
Dominio Aguila Canta La Perdiz belongs in the highest echelon of Spanish wine. The predominantly tempranillo blend ranks as the most expensive red wine from Ribera del Duero, retailing north of $300 per bottle. Critics have lauded it for its timeless finesse, focus, harmoniousness, and perfume.
"Our finest plot" is how Jorge Monzón describes this west and southwest-facing parcel at 890 metres. Cultivated biodynamically, it's one of the oldest vineyards in La Aguilera. Fermented with 100% whole bunches, it's a delicate, refined, layered field blend of Tinto Fino and five other varieties. Taut and focused, with remarkable delicacy, chalky intensity and flavours of citrus, red cherry, raspberry and red plum. Long, spicy and hauntingly ethereal.
