Bodegas Carramimbre Crianza, DO Ribera del DueroRegular price €25.00
Opulent, intense Ribera brimming with overripe blackberry and plum fruits over a frame of well-judged, toasty oak. Full bodied, with a moderately-tannic wash of black fruit, pepper and menthol. Very powerful and impressive.
Drink 2012-2020, after decanting, with fillet steak, grilled red meats or a game stew.
Bodegas Carramimbre forms part of the El Pingón estate in the Valladolid province of Spain, and was set up in 1997 by an association of long-established winemaking families from the Ribera del Duero region.
The estate covers more than fifty hectares of vineyards, and French and American oak barrels inside the winery lend their distinctive character to the range of wines produced, which regularly find favour with the Peñin and Parker Guides and from other critics world-wide.
