Fresh and juicy, this roble (barrel aged) style wine seeks to evoke a sense of old Ribera del Duero. Lovely nose of cherries and plums, cracked pepper and bright acidity.
Quinta Milú is headed by young winemaker Germán Blanco who is championing a fresher style of Tinto del Pais-- the local name for Tempranillo. He calls his project a 'Micro-winery ‘ and it is a true family business, based around the village of La Aguilera in the Burgos province. He works with very old vineyards, many of which are planted at over 900 metres above sea level. Germán makes his elegant, fruit-forward wines using foot-treading, wild yeast fermentation and minimal handling. All his wines share a delicious rusticity, purity of fruit, and incredible freshness.
