La Brecha 2016 stands out for a very expressive nose, with aromas of ripe red fruits (plums, redcurrants and raspberries), dried fruits and a touch of freshly cut grass, tobacco, coffee and cocoa. On the palate it is pleasant and flavoursome with strawberries and wild berries (blackberries and currants).

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

La Brecha is a Tempranillo red wine, harvested from old vines, aged in wood and produced by Fedellos do Couto in the D.O Ribera del Duero, in the south of the Burgos region, in Castilla y León.

This wine is made by Curro Bareño and Jesús Olivares, who are behind Fedellos do Couto, a project set up in Ribera Sacra in 2013 that has created several wines that have been featured on the cover of prestigious publication Decanter. Now, in a new adventure, they have swapped the Sil valley for the Duero valley, where they make La Brecha together with Cristina Boch and winegrower Isaac Esteban.

To make this wine, they use Tempranillo (also known as Cencibel, Tinta de Toro or Tinta del País), growing south of Burgos in La Larga, (a 30 hectare estate in Gumiel del Mercado) and in other villages, like Caleruega, at an altitude of over 1000 metres.

La Brecha is a fresh, smooth and easy to drink wine. The perfect introduction to the Ribera del Duero.

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.
