Personalised Lopez Cristobal Roble Ribera del Duero 2019 14% 750ml

The ultimate tapas companion, this brilliant cherry coloured red is the perfect balance of fruit and oak. The fleshy strawberry and wild berry perfume lures you into this full-bodied wine decorated in subtle hints of toasty oak. It has a superbly complex structure and a lasting finish. Drink it while it’s young and fresh, alongside an assortment of tapas including jamon, grilled peppers or asparagus omelette.

The winery is located in Roa, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. In 1994, after several years of selling his grapes to other wineries, Santiago López realized his dream of making his own wine. The name López Cristóbal is a union of two last names, his name with that of his wife Lola Cristóbal. In the 1930's Santiago's father Santiago Sr. arrived in the Ribera del Duero area from Santander to start a successful farm, where the winery is now located. The family tradition continues with next generation Galo at the helm. The winery owns 50 hectares of its own vineyards, divided into nine separate parcels and planted predominately to Tempranillo. Each parcel has its own distinct soil, providing a combination of calcareous and clay-lime composite which results in wines of excellent complexity.
