Characteristics of La Celestina

La Celestina is a monovarietal Tinto Fino red wine, also called Tempranillo, from the D.O. Ribera del Duero made by the Dominio de Atauta winery.

Dominio de Atauta is located in the town of Atauta in Soria. It is a winery that places a great emphasis on viticulture, because it understands that in order to obtain quality wines you have to start by pampering the vineyard.

The vineyards where the grapes for preparing La Celestina come from are between 20 and 30 years old and are located at an altitude of 950 metres. The altitude makes the temperature difference between day and night greater and promotes the development of the plant and helps achieve a balanced ripening. The climate is continental with Mediterranean features, characterised by long, cold winters and short, hot summers.

The grapes for making La Celestina have been fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 26 and 28ºC to preserve the expression of the fruit and extract enough compounds to withstand further ageing. Malolactic fermentation takes place in a tank, and lastly the wine is aged for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels. 25% of the barrels are renewed annually to obtain balsamic and more spicy touches in the final wine.

La Celestina is a fine, elegant, fresh and complex red Crianza from Ribera de Duero.

Tasting notes La Celestina

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
La Celestina 2016 is a structured wine that is fresh and intense on the nose. It has aromas of somewhat riper fresh red and black fruit, and notes of balsam and undergrowth. Concentrated and fresh on the palate, it is silky and with a fruity aftertaste.
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.

    Dominio de Atauta is a relatively new project. Since the beginning, its aim has been to express all the character of the Valley of Atauta, at 1,000 metres of altitude, in the province of Soria. Here, some of their wines are made from pre-phylloxera vineyards of Tinto Fino and some others from vines that are over 85 years old. Relying on this phyolosphy and adding an excellent human factor to the unique conditions of the terroir, the wines from Dominio de Atauta have managed to place themselves among the most renowned ones, within an outstanding Denomination of Origin like Ribera del Duero.
