Characteristics of Garmón
Garmón is a red wine produced in Ribera del Duero by Bodegas Continental in Olivares de Duero, Valladolid.
Bodegas Continental is the new winery by Mariano García (Vega-Sicília’s long-standing former oenologist and current co-owner of Aalto) and his children. Continuing their family project Mauro, they have built the winery within the D.O Ribera del Duero. They are focused on increasing the value of the old Tempranillo clones in the old vineyards, which represents a step towards the D.O’s traditional wines.
The vines that produce this wine come from the towns of La Aguilera, Moradillo and Baños de Valdearados. They are mainly settled on clay-lime and sandy-clay soils with yields of about 3000-4000 per hectare.
Garmón ferments and macerates for 14 days with native yeast at a temperature below 28ºC. When it has finished fermenting, it is decanted into French oak barrels where it ages for 16 months.
Garmón is a full-bodied wine, but without an excessive ripeness. It attempts to express the aromas and the texture of the wines that gave Ribera del Duero global fame.
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.
