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.
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.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their 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.
SightIntense, bright cherry colour with violet reflections. Glyceric tears.NoseLots of fresh and stewed black fruit are released mixed with lots of nuances of hot spices, milk and cocoa and along with fresh balsamic notes and hints of undergrowth on its elegant mineral background.
Very frank, intense and seductive wine.
TasteWine with a marked fruity expression, a wide attack and a silky and very tasty, meaty mid palate. Its notes of tobacco, its balsamic, vegetable and mineral hints nuance its powerful fruity aromas. A high creaminess and polished tannins are noticed. Its long finish leaves sweety feelings of jam and chocolate.
Ribera del Duero is a Denomination of Origin located on the northern plateau, bathed by the waters of the River Duero, where they produce delicious and recognised red wines with great complexity made from the Trinto Fino grape variety.
It was in 1999 when Javier Wormwood, Jose Luis Simon and Julio Cesar Conde decided to launch the project that united them and excited for some time, make wine they liked. With minimal financial contribution by the three parties, and under the supervision of winemaker Isaac Frenández, rented a space in a warehouse, bought grapes and produced 6,000 bottles of the Neo 2000. With an area of ââsome 10 hectares of Tempranillo or Tinta del Pais, taking care of all the processes both in the vineyard and the winery, produce powerful red wines with a strong personality that can not remain indifferent to whom the tasting and enjoy. Since 2004 also produce other wines in OJ as Rueda, Toro, Bierzo, Rioja and Priorat.
