Casajus Vendimia Seleccionada (750ml)
Castilla y Leon
Ribera del Duero
Bodegas J. A. Calvo Casajus is located in Ribera del Duero. It is owned and operated by its namesake, Jose Alberto Calvo Casajus. It is literally a one-man operation with Casajus also doubling as his village’s baker.
This wine is made with 100% Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) grapes from vineyards located in Quintana del Pidio, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero appellation in the province of Burgos. The vines are 85 years old. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel and aged six months in French oak. Intense nose with lots of nuances and aromas of sweet berries, truffles, spice and licorice. Pronounced blackberry flavour with licorice and mineral notes and ripe round tannins.
The wines of Casajus warm my soul; they are crafted out of love and passion with a great respect for the traditions of Ribera del Duero, but with a modern sensibility that makes them more elegant than the once brooding wines from this region. Sweet berries, licorice and minerality…oh my!
