The Wine

This renowned 100% Tempranillo—once famously called “the Pétrus of Spain” by Robert Parker, comes from Estate vineyards in Lucia, Vina Alto and Llano Santiago. These are high elevation sites (2,400 feet) and the vines are between 30 and 40 years of age. The soils are poor and well-drained and are composed of sand and gravel over a limestone and clay subsoil.

The late-harvested grapes were mostly destemmed, leaving maximum whole berries, and the ferment occurred only with natural yeasts after a cold soak. All vineyard blocks were vinified separately. The unclarified wine went directly to 225-300 litre oak after pressing. Fernández' oak vessels are an astute blend of American, Spanish and French oak, custom-cured and made by Spain's finest coopers. None of the wines are filtered.

93 points, James Suckling, jamesuckling.com “Fresh black plums and black cherries that absorb the oak spices, together with a hint of tobacco. A broad and juicy Ribera del Duero with nicely chewy tannins that provide structure to the concentrated fruit. Long and bright. Drinkable now, but better to give it a year to soften more.”

About the Wine Maker

The Fernández Rivera family has a longstanding tradition of living amidst vineyards, harboring deep respect, love, and pride for the wine produced from their native Ribera del Duero soil. Since Alejandro Fernández and Esperanza Rivera, a young and ambitious couple, acquired a modest winery, their family's destiny has been intertwined with a passion for winemaking that spans generations. Driven by the belief that their hometown could once again produce exceptional wines, they defied the prevailing agricultural trends of cereal and beetroot cultivation and planted Tempranillo vineyards in Pesquera de Duero. In 1975, within the walls of a humble 16th-century stone llagar, or ancient wine press, they crafted the inaugural Tinto Pesquera wines.

Nestled near the Duero River in the province of Valladolid, Tinto Pesquera's vineyards stand at nearly 2,400 feet above sea level. The vines thrive in sparse, well-drained soils, a mix of sand and gravel atop a limestone and clay foundation. This perfect synergy yields the renowned, velvety, and rich Tempranillo wines that have become a hallmark of Tinto Pesquera and a symbol of the D.O. Ribera del Duero—a designation that Alejandro was instrumental in establishing in 1982 alongside a handful of other visionaries.

The Fernández Rivera family at Tinto Pesquera dedicates itself to crafting exclusively aged Tempranillo wines of extraordinary quality from their own vineyards. The wines, aged extensively in neutral oak barrels, evolve to become more intricate and subtle over time while retaining their intrinsic character. This dedication to the Tempranillo variety and a steadfast commitment to maturity—releasing wines only when they reach peak readiness—has cemented Tinto Pesquera's reputation as a producer of premier wines from Ribera del Duero.
