Characteristics of Peñas Aladas Gran Reserva

Peñas Aladas Gran Reserva is a red wine from Ribera del Duero produced by Dominio del Águila in the town of La Aguilera, Burgos.

Dominio del Águila is a winery founded by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero in 2010. Jorge started his oenology studies in Burdeos and continued his professional career in emblematic wineries like Romanée-Conti and Vega Sicilia before ending up at the Arzuaga wineries.

They cultivate 30 hectares of eco-friendly vineyards with Tempranillo as the main variety, planted with other varieties such as Bobal, Garnacha and Albillo on sandy-clayey-rocky soil depending on the plot.

Peñas Aladas comes from a specific part of an old vineyard aged around 85 years old, located in the town of La Aguilera. It is mostly composed of the Tempranillo variety (85%) and minor varieties such as Albillo, Bobal, Cariñena etc. It used to be a framework of the old traditional plantations, in which they used to mix other varieties, including some white varieties.

Peñas Aladas Gran Reserva ferments with the entire grape and with its own yeast in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then decanted into French oak barrels where it stays for 55 months, ageing and refining slowly in the winery's underground cellars.

Peñas Aladas Gran Reserva is an aged red wine, a classic style in which a great grape and great ageing make an excellent wine.

Tasting notes Peñas Aladas Gran Reserva

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.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.
