|Vera Czerny rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
The weather conditions (the cool nights and hot days) on the hillside of the Quiñón Estate, located in the western area of Ribera del Duero, result in Tempranillo grapes (called here Tinto Fino) with thicker skin.
That translates into wines with much more intense and concentrated color and flavors, than anywhere else in Spain.
Despite the short time spent in the oak, Barco de Piedra charms with deep color, beautiful aromas of dark fruit and spices and enough concentrated flavors to satisfy even the “full flavors, big reds” lovers.
I appreciate the notes of dark plums, spices and earthy flavors in this wine. The complexity and balance promises an aging potential for another few years.
