Characteristics of El Corazón de la Tierra

El Corazón de la Tierra  is a red wine produced by the winery Virgen de la Asunción in La Horra, D.O. Ribera del Duero.


Thewinery Virgen de la Asunción is a cooperative comprised of more than 100 winegrowing families. It was founded in 1957 in La Horra and it is one of the leading cooperatives in Ribera del Duero.

They own 325 hectares of vineyards located in the Golden Triangle (Roa-La Horra-Sotillo), at altitudes that range between 800 and 850 metres. Half of the vines are over 50 years old, and some of them are even a century old.

 

El Corazón de la Tierra is a wine produced with 100% Tinto Fino from vineyards that are 50-90 years old, with a yield of 0.5 Kg per vine. Harvest is performed by hand. Grapes ferment in stainless steel deposits and aged for 14 months in 500-litre French oak barrels. They undergo daily batonnages the first 5 months.

 

El Corazón de la Tierra is an intense, full-bodied wine, with slight freshness. Ripe black fruit is mixed with the toasted spicy notes of ageing, with a hint of minerality.

Tasting notes El Corazón de la Tierra

The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
