Characteristics of Pícaro del Águila

Pícaro del Águila 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 and the Tempranillo is the main variety planted with others such as Bobal, Garnacha and Albillo on sandy-clayey-rocky soil depending on the plot.

Pícaro del Águila is made with vines between 35-60 years old, on sandy-clay soil and 900 metres above sea level. The main variety is Tempranillo with some Albillo, Bobal and Garnacha vines.

Fermentation is carried out with all the varieties together in a large maceration, it is pressed by foot and is aged in French oak barrels for 19 months.

Pícaro del Águila is a red wine like those from the Ribera del Duero in the past, with a good balance between the fruit and wood and a vibrant acidity.

Tasting notes Pícaro del Águila

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.
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.
