Conde de Siruela Ribera del Duero Reserva is a beautiful red wine gem from this renowned wine region of Spain. At the time of release, after 2 years in oak barrels and another year in bottles, the winery was called Bodegas Santa Eulalia, but its name is now Bodegas Frutos Villar. The beginning of the Frutos Villar family's professional involvement in the wine market can be traced back to the early 20th century when they only produced and sold wine locally from the Toro region. Well before the so-called "Denominaciones de Origen" or DO came into being, they set up their first winery at Toro in 1920. Staying true to their philosophy of renewal and progress, they established their second winery at Cigales in 1960.
Conde de Siruela is 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo.) Cherry red, bright and clear with good depth. Highly complex bouquet with balsamic tones and hints of vanilla. Rich and smooth with powerful flavors and a long, full finish.
Enjoy Conde de Siruela Ribera del Duero Reserva over the next 3-5 years with roast pork, lamb, venison and tapas.
