"The 2007 T-Sanzo Tempranillo was naturally fermented and aged in French and American oak for six months. It exhibits an expressive perfume of wood smoke, pencil lead, violets, cinnamon, incense, and blackberry. This leads to a mouth-filling, generous, richly-fruited wine with lots of spice, superb balance, and a lengthy fruit-filled finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2019. It is a terrific value." (05/09)
"All the wines are made by Javier Rodriguez in collaboration with the technicians of each of the participating bodegas in each zone."
"These common characteristics "which can be appreciated to a greater or lesser degree and which essentially vary depending on the mixture of grape varieties used" are based on winemaking methodology that seek the utmost polymerization combined with an intense perception of fruity aromas. This is supported by a selection of oaks that transform our cask stocks into a unique and original mosaic. When selecting our woods, we place an emphasis on their aromatic contribution, slow evolution and respect for the wine's origin "the grape" with all its sensations." -Winery
"Widely planted and cherished throughout Spain, Tempranillo produces red wines that are well-balanced in sweetness, color and acidity and yields fresh and fruity characteristics with appealing aromas such as black plums, cherry, and licorice."
"Tempranillo is native to northern Spain and widely cultivated as far south as La Mancha. The two major regions that grow Tempranillo are Rioja in North Central Spain and Ribera del Duero, which lies a little further to the south. Ribera del Duero wine making goes back over 2,000 years as evidenced by the 66-meter mosaic of Bacchus, the god of wine that was unearthed relatively recently at Banos de Valdearados. Substantial quantities are also grown in the Penedes, Navarra and Valdepenas regions." -DrinkRibera.com
