    “The Páramo de Corcos region is the most surprising and at the same time, unknown region of Ribera. Ten thousand hectares of flat landscape, where only the bravest know how to work the land in extreme conditions throughout the year. A place where the cold shrinks the bones, the wind cuts the flesh and the sun burns the skin.

    The Páramo reflects the sweat, fear and strength of the people who cultivate a land where the most sought after grape of the entire denomination can be found.”

    INTRODUCTION

    The Páramo de Corcos region is the most surprising and at the same time, unknown region of Ribera.

A place where the cold shrinks the bones, the wind cuts the flesh and the sun burns the skin.

    TASTING NOTES

    The nose is complex and attractive, with notes of black fruit, chocolate and French oak. The palate is fleshy and powerful, with a balanced acidity and nice tannins giving the wine all its character.
