D.O. Ribera del Duero (Castilla y León)
Hacienda Solano Selección is a red wine produced by the Hacienda Solano winery in La Aguilera (Burgos), D.O. Ribera del Duero.
Hacienda Solano is the personal project of the Cubillo family. In 2001 the three siblings, Estrella, Nuria and Agustín decided to start making their own wines from the family vineyards which until then they had only worked in order to sell the grapes to the best wineries in the area. To do so, they have been joined from the beginning in technical management by the enologist Sophie Khün and since 2016 by Toni Sarrión from the Mustiguillo winery.
Hacienda Solano has vineyards in the La Aguilera area; old vineyards, some over a hundred years old, located at altitude and worked ecologically though as yet uncertified. Perfect conditions for preparing wines that reflect all the character of the terroir and the variety with freshness and with a great bouquet power.
Hacienda Solano Selección is a wine made with Tinto Fino grapes from vineyards over 30 years old located in the area of La Aguilera.
Harvesting is carried out by hand, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature, and the result is then aged for 8 months in used French oak barrels.
