Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

La Celestina is a monovarietal Tinto Fino red wine, also called Tempranillo, from the D.O. Ribera del Duero made by the Dominio de Atauta winery.

Dominio de Atauta is located in the town of Atauta in Soria. It is a winery that places a great emphasis on viticulture, because it understands that in order to obtain quality wines you have to start by pampering the vineyard.

The vineyards where the grapes for preparing La Celestina come from are between 20 and 30 years old and are located at an altitude of 950 metres. The altitude makes the temperature difference between day and night greater and promotes the development of the plant and helps achieve a balanced ripening. The climate is continental with Mediterranean features, characterised by long, cold winters and short, hot summers.

The grapes for making La Celestina have been fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 26 and 28ºC to preserve the expression of the fruit and extract enough compounds to withstand further ageing. Malolactic fermentation takes place in a tank, and lastly the wine is aged for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels. 25% of the barrels are renewed annually to obtain balsamic and more spicy touches in the final wine.

La Celestina is a fine, elegant, fresh and complex red Crianza from Ribera de Duero.

Dominio de Atauta is a relatively new project. Since the beginning, its aim has been to express all the character of the Valley of Atauta, at 1,000 metres of altitude, in the province of Soria. Here, some of their wines are made from pre-phylloxera vineyards of Tinto Fino and some others from vines that are over 85 years old. Relying on this phyolosphy and adding an excellent human factor to the unique conditions of the terroir, the wines from Dominio de Atauta have managed to place themselves among the most renowned ones, within an outstanding Denomination of Origin like Ribera del Duero.
