Review:

If you are looking for a Ribera del Duero wine in the 10 to 15 euro price bracket, or perhaps just above, then Alconte is one of your best options. This wine’s quality is undeniable; its price is reasonable; but it comes particularly recommended for its seductive nose, its roundness and for being a wine capable of pleasing a variety of palates. Let us get to know it a bit better.

Alconte is the youngest member of the Montecastro wine family, one of the region’s medium-sized bodegas, relatively new but with a promising future ahead of it, judging by the small number of vintages that have been released onto the market so far. It is made solely using the Tinto Fino grape variety, sourced from five vineyard estates growing vines of varied ages (as the winery was only established quite recently, it has made arrangements with certain local vine-growers for them to supply grapes from older, more finely balanced vines); vinification is carried out in concrete vats (not in the customary stainless steel tanks) and ageing takes place in French (70%) and American oak barrels, with just one third made of new wood (another third comprises one-wine barrels, and the other third has previously been used for two wines).

The oak has been extremely well handled in Alconte, coming over on the nose as fine toasty and smoky notes that are not discordant in the slightest, complementing an all-pervading feeling of freshness and fruit character, and, quite commonly found in this bodega’s two wines: with a touch of the Bordeaux. The13.5 degrees of alcohol have been very well integrated, and maybe on the palate there is slightly less fruit revealed than on the nose, yet all the same it is balanced, rounded, intense and luscious, with smooth tannins and firm acidity (a vanilla background is evident on the aftertaste). This is definitely a fine wine, powerful but with no rough edges, and a most appealing wine at that.
