D.O. Ribera del Duero (Castilla y León)
Bracamonte Crianza is a red wine from the D.O. Ribera del Duero produced by the Bracamonte winery. This wine is made exclusively with the Tinta del País variety, the name given to the Tempranillo grape in the region.
The grapes used for Bracamonte Crianza are grown on vines between 35 and 40 years old. The harvest is carried out manually. The grapes undergo a selection process at both the vineyard and the wineries facilities. Once selected, the grapes are destemmed before undergoing alcoholic fermentation in cement coated tanks at a controlled temperature of 28ºC.
The must undergoes several daily pumpings, with the aim of obtaining the optimum colour and extraction. Malolactic fermentation is then carried out before the wine is decanted to oak barrels for the ageing process. The wine is then aged for one year in these barrels. Following this, the wine is decanted to tanks to be clarified and stabilised and is finally affined for one year in the bottle before being placed onto the market.
The Bracamonte winery was founded in 1986 and was later acquired by the Yllera group. With over 30 years of experience, the company is currently experiencing a period of expansion, and it is an evolution the world of wine will follow closely.
