Domincio Basconcillos, Vina Magna, Ribera Del Duero 2018
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
This pours bright rich purple with ripe fruit and mocha aromas, red fruits hit the palate first then chewy darker blackberries. This wine is well worth the price bracket.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Dominio Basconcillos, near Trevino in the Burgos sub-region of Ribera del Duero, was started by José Maria Basconcillos in 2000 with legendary Ribera winemaker, Tomas Postillon.
The whole bodega is modern, large and surrounded by its own vineyards on the high plateau at 960m, crucial to allowing later ripening and a higher glycerol content in the wines. Using sustainable and environmentally friendly methods and with more Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot planted than their neighbours, this is a top bodega with intentions to be a wine of reference in Ribera del Duero for the future.
