Characteristics of Francisco Barona

Francisco Barona is a red wine produced by the winery Francisco Barona Viñedos in Pedrosa de Duero, D.O. Ribera del Duero.

 

In 2009, after studying oenology in Bordeaux and working in wineries all around the world, Francisco Barona returned to his homeland, Ribera del Duero, and started his personal project. By recovering century-old vineyards, he made authentic, singular and different wines.

In 2011, Francisco Barona managed to buy 5 "majuelos" or vineyards planted with old vines. Up until then, the grapes from these vines were sold to Vega Sicilia. Currently, the wine has 26 hectares of vineyard, 28 "grand crus" planted between 1908 and 1948. These vineyards are cultivated organically and following the cosmic cycles, without herbicides nor pesticides. At the winery, the processes are carried out manually and with very little intervention.

 

Francisco Barona is a wine made from Tinto Fino, Grenache, Albillo, Bobal, Monastrel and Jaén, from old vineyards located in the neighbouring municipalities.

The harvest is carried out by hand and the grapes are placed in boxes. At the winery, they fermented with native yeasts, with a malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels, where they will remain for 18 months. This wine is bottled without clarifying or filtering.

 

Francisco Barona is a mature, ample and complex wine. On the nose, the aromas of red fruit stand out on a spicy and mineral background. In the mouth, it is easy silky and quite long lasting. A Ribera del Duero that will have people talking.

Tasting notes Francisco Barona

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.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
