The wine

Viña Sastre presents the youngest member of its well-established range: a 10-month Crianza, made using grapes from their vineyards in La Horra and Roa, with ages ranging between 17 and 30 years old, planted with bush vines at an altitude of 800 metres and cared for in a time-honoured tradition, without applying mineral fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides, practicing a form of viticulture that incorporates organic and biodynamic and results in a particularly intense wine, both in colour and on the palate.

Viña Sastre Roble is undoubtedly a young wine, with a deep colour, great density and a violet rim. On the nose, it comes over as open and very apparent, right from the start, although oddly, both the 2010 vintage and the previous one, the 2009, which we have also had the chance to taste, showed a reductive element; this was not at all problematic as it disappeared, with a bit of aeration, giving way to fresh fruit and toasty notes, hints of dried fruits, on a spicy background and complemented by woody, herbaceous and resinous aromas. Revealing a rounded and full-bodied palate, it is juicy, mature and balanced, showing fine, smooth tannins; persistent yet not overly lengthy, but with firm acidity, and fresh. Keep it for a while longer in bottle and you will find this bodega’s least expensive wine even more enjoyable – a clear benchmark in the Ribera del Duero denomination.

(Aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels.)

Today, Viña Sastre is one of the Ribera del Duero's benchmark wineries, known and appreciated both for the wines of its traditional line (Rosé, Roble and Crianza) and also for the wines belonging to its top-quality range: Pago Santa Cruz, Acos, Regina Vides and the legendary Pesus, of which only 1,800 bottles are made a year. This great little family-run winery started out in the mid-twentieth century when Severiano Sastre planted some vineyards which as time passed would...
