Characteristics of Sei Solo
Sei Solo is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region produced by Javier Zaccagnini. This wine is made using only Tinto Fino grapes.
The grapes used to make Sei Solo come from 4 plots of vineyards that are 60 years old, situated in the locality of La Horra. Here the viticulture and cultivation of the vineyards is carried out in a manner respectful to the environment.
The harvest is carried out manually in small boxes to ensure that the grapes do not break or lose freshness before arriving at the winery.
At the winery, the grapes are destemmed and later undergo cold maceration. Following this they are moved to 2,500 litre capacity wooden tanks.
Sei Solo, before being bottled and placed on the market, is aged for 18 months in used oak barrels that have a capacity of between 228-600 litres.
Sei Solo is the personal project of Javier Zaccagini: the ex-president of Consejo Regulador Ribera del Duero and co-founder of Aalto. The name of this wine pays hommage to one of the owner of the wineries favourite works: “Sei Solo a Violino senza Basso accompagnato” by Johann Sebastian Bach.
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.
Sei Solo 2015 is an intense, balanced and elegant red wine. An excellent vintage that displays all the character of the variety and the terroir. A powerful aroma, with ripe red fruit, marked toasted notes and spicy nuances. On the palate it is voluminous, meaty and highly lingering.
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.
Ribera del Duero wine is one of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Red wines made with Tinto Fino variety grapes, with highly complex aromas, fine on the palate and with a great storage capacity. The wines of Ribera del Duero present a perfect balance between the vividness of the fruit and the refinement of the wood, which has led to them obtaining a well-deserved international acclaim.
