Characteristics of Melior

Melior is a red wine from Ribera del Duero prepared by Matarromera, a winery founded in 1988 in Valbuena de Duero (Valladolid).

The climate in this area is Mediterranean with continental influences, characterized by a moderate to low rainfall, dry summers, cold winters and great temperature variation between seasons. This wine is a varietal Tempranillo (100%) from vineyards planted on 85 hectares of sandy-clay soil at about 800 meters above sea level. The vineyards were planted between 1999 and 2001. In terms of processing, the traditional method is followed.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 10-14 days at a controlled temperature of 26ºC. Finally, Melior rests for six months in new American oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle.

Alcohol: 13.5%
Serve at 16ºC
