Characteristics of Vega del Yuso

Vega del Yuso is a barrel-aged red wine made by Bodegas Virtus in the D.O. Ribera de Duero with the Tinto Fino variety.

Bodegas Virtus was set up in 2013 in the town of Aldeyuso, in Peñafiel (Castilla y León). An exceptional location in the heart of the D.O. Ribera de Duero. Tradition and innovation are perfectly combined to make quality wines with region’s traditional Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) variety.

The Vega del Yuso grapes come from plots near the winery where the vines are aged between 40 and 80 years old. These are strains planted in poor soils of clay, pebbles and limestone, lying at an altitude of over 900 metres above sea level. Traditional agriculture is used and the harvest is carried out manually in 10 kg boxes.

In the winery, the Vega del Yuso grapes are cooled to 4°C in a cold room and then they go through a double selection process. Once destemmed, a pre-fermentation maceration takes place at 10°C for one week. Vinification is carried out by plot in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks for 30 days with gentle extractions by regular pump overs and cap plunges. Finally, malolactic fermentation takes place in new barrels and the wine ages for 18-20 months in French oak: half in new barrels and the other half in used barrels.

Considered a virtuoso of this winery, the Vega del Yuso red wine balances the concentration of the fruit with the elegant toasted touches of the barrel. Pure Ribera de Duero soul.

Tasting notes Vega del Yuso

Vega del Yuso is a concentrated red wine with intense aromas of ripe black fruits and notes of coffee and toast. On the palate it is powerful, creamy and complex. A wine with a pleasant freshness despite its tannic structure.
