Goyo Garcia Ribera del Duero "Georgieva" Clarete- soft, old world elegance

$26.00Price

From Ribera, this is an outstanding 'Clarete,' pressed from lagars into barrel, in an overnight pressing. It's an old fashioned style, and yields lovely bite, grip and freshness to the dark, earthy fruit profile of Tempranillo. This is not a mix of white and red grapes, like many Claretes are, but apparently the definition of a Clarete isn't fixed from region to region in Spain (or elsewhere in the world). This one is all Tempranillo from the Quemados vineyard, but a acid driven little cousin to the fully macerated red that Viadeo also produces.  -EL
