Characteristics of Hito Rosado
Hito Rosado is a rose wine made by Bodegas Cepa 21 in the Ribera del Duero. The winery is owned by Emilio Moro family, known Spanish wine growers who also own another winery in Ribera del Duero, Bodega Emilio Moro.
Bodegas Cepa 21, in this case, is characterised by its minimalistic and functional design and their production of modern wines.
Hito Rosado is 100% made from Tinto Fino. The grapes come from vineyards that are grown at an altitude of between 750 and 850m above sea level, on sandy clay loam soils.
For processing, a long settling and cold maceration for about 24 hours is performed.
After the maceration, the must ferments at a controlled temperature between 12 and 15 C in stainless steel tanks.
Finally, the wine is aged for 6 months with its lees and carbon.
Hito Rosado is a different rosé wine made from Tinto Fino, reminiscent of a red bine but with the freshness of rose wines.

After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards.
The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards.
The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
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.
