Characteristics of Briego Vendimia Seleccionada
Briego Vendimia Seleccionada is a young red wine from the D.O Ribera del Duero produced by the Briego winery. This is a single variety wine, made exclusively with the Tempranillo grape variety.
All of the grapes used for Briego Vendimia Seleccionada come from the same vineyard: El Bercial. After the harvest has been carried out manually, the grapes are transported to the winery with care, to ensure that they are not damaged or broken during transit, avoiding premature fermentations.
At the winery, the grapes are left to ferment for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 20ºC. The winemaking and production process follows traditional methods, drawing on the years of experience and successful techniques already used in the Ribera del Duero region.
After the various phases of the winemaking process have been carried out, Briego Vendimia Seleccionada is aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels.
The Briego winery was founded back in 1992. Their wines show a great balance between a good intensity, strong character, and a marked character.
Ribera del Duero is a Denomination of Origin located on the northern plateau, bathed by the waters of the River Duero, where they produce delicious and recognised red wines with great complexity made from the Trinto Fino grape variety.
Bodegas Briego is located in Fompedraza, a small village of the region of Valladolid, where the winemaking is a tradition. The Benito Hernando brothers (Fernando, Gaspar and Javier) are the owners of Bodegas Briego and the ones responsible for retrieving the vinicultural family tradition.
