Rudeles is a family winery and their vineyards are in Peñalba de San Esteban, in the province of Soria, at an altitude of over 900m. This eastern part of the DO is in the province of Soria and is less wellknown than the rest of the Ribera del Duero appellation. Our vineyards, comprising 17 hectares, are situated on the side of a hill which separates us from the main area of the Ribera; it is an array of tiny plots of vineyard, some of them planted with only 50 vines. Almost all the vines are over one hundred years old.
The wine is elaborated from 100% Albillo vines. Grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed, crushed and macerated for 1 day of skin contact, wild yeast fermented and raised in French oak barrels. Once its fermentation is complete, 33% of the wine stays on lees in barrels and the remaining wine is kept in stainless steel tanks for four and a half months. Wine is elaborated following the prescriptions of sustainable viniculture.
The light oak ageing gives pleasant tobacco and vanilla flavors; This creates the final wine, balancing the oak complexity and citrus fruit aromas.
