Characteristics of Loess Collection Ribera del Duero
Loess Collection is a red wine produced by Bodegas Miguel and Ruano, better known as Loess in Ribera del Duero. Loess is known for its production of white in the Rueda, and this Loess Collection made the leap to the neighbouring Ribera del Duero, an excellent land for producing reds.

The farms are located at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level with sandy soils rich in clays and minerals.
First a rigorous selection of grapes occurs in the vineyard, and thereafter in the winery. The grapes are macerated cold before fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature of 28 ° C in stainless steel tanks.
