Dominio del Aguila is a family winery based in La Aguilera, a small village in Ribera del Duero. Helmed by power couple Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero (vigneron and architect respectively) who have joined efforts since 2010 to make a dream come true.
The domain's greatest asset is the vineyard with 30 hectares of very old vines farmed organically. Made from almost entirely Tempranillo (95%), Drinking splendidly now with a one hour decant or can be cellared for years to come!
From the winemaker:
"The Tinto ... is a co-fermented blend of primarily Tempranillo with Albillo, Garnacha and Bobal. Despite its 12-20 months in French oak, it is bright, vibrant and aromatic. Fun and vibrant are usually not words associated with Ribera but it is certainly the case with the Pícaro Tinto."
James Suckling 94 points
"Very complex, light pink-berry aromas with baking spices, wild herbs and bright floral notes. The palate is musky and delicious with a really superb textural build and a smooth, fine and fresh blood-orange and strawberry finish..."
