Bet your friends think this wine costs twice as much? HITO is a dynamic wine , modern, along the lines established by the winemaker. HITO breaks the trend in the development of young wines. The CEPA 21 Hito Tinto is produced with grapes harvested from the lowest parts of our vineyards. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in steel tanks for 12 days, followed by a malolactic fermentation for 30 days. The wine then matures for an average of 8 months in French oak barrels. Cepa 21 has set a new standard in the Ribera del Duero : technology, facilities , research, marketing . The Hito is one of the wines from the Ribera with the best price/quality ratio that can be found. Parker speaks in his review about " A benchmark Ribera at a very attractive price "

The vineyards of Bodegas Cepa 21 are one of its greatest assets. They are located at an altitude of between 750 and 900 meters above sea level and face north. Both factors ensure that the grapes ripen gradually, giving them complexity and freshness. The project has 50 hectares of its own vineyards on soils of silty sand, clay or limestone, most of them very close to the winery and planted with the clone of centuries-old vineyards of the area (the purest Tempranillo from the Ribera del Duero). The winery is equipped with fully equipped facilities, consisting of a tasting room with a beautiful view of the barrel room, a terrace that is a true viewpoint over a sea of vineyards and a hall with a spectacular window that connects the modernity of the complex with tradition from the vineyard, Cepa 21 is pure minimalism and efficiency.

The 'Hito' ('milestone') is a modern-styled Ribera del Duero, elegant with a beautiful ruby red color, a ripe nose of blackberry, black cherry, strawberry, pepper and incense, quite powerful and wonderfully fruity (cassis) in the mouth. Very long finish, pleasantly spicy and with beautifully integrated wood and vanilla notes. Nevertheless, there is a striking freshness that saves the wine from a tiring aftertaste.

ABOUT VINTAGE 2021 IN THE RIBERA DEL DUERO

The 2021 vintage saw mild spring temperatures, abundant rainfall in April and a summer with temperatures slightly lower than normal, which slowed the plants' vegetative cycle. At the beginning of autumn there was little rain, which promoted the ripening of the grapes

Vineyard for 2021 CEPA 21 HITO Magnum

Cepa 21 was founded by one of Ribera del Duero's best winemakers: Emilio Moro. Since 2022, CEPA 21 has stood on its own two feet and is led by Jose Moro (the brother of Javier Moro, the owner of Emilio Moro). Bodegas Cepa 21 is a boutique winery located in Castrillo de Duero, a Valladolid village in the area known as the Golden Mile. A winery created to dream in wine, combining tradition and modernity with a unique and exquisite terroir. A real commitment to enhance the best qualities the land has to offer, choosing north-facing vineyards to obtain wines with soul and a unique freshness. With the Tempranillo variety as its flagship, Bodegas Cepa 21 presents a range of five wines: Hito Rosé, Hito, Cepa 21, Malabrigo and Horcajo. They all reflect in each glass a respectful elaboration of the variety, the freshness of the Tempranillo variety and the know-how and experience of the creator, José Moro.

Cepa 21 was born with the aim of becoming a differential project and was built by José Moro's distinctive ideas, creativity and unique vision. But Jose Moro's disruptive spirit is in large part the result of his ancestors' legacy. More than a hundred years ago, his grandfather chose his own clone of the queen variety (Tempranillo) to achieve the unique character of the wines. His grandson, generations later, followed suit and made innovation one of the driving forces behind his business.

The vineyards of Bodegas Cepa 21 are one of its greatest assets. They are located at an altitude between 750 and 900 meters above sea level and face north. Both factors allow the grapes to ripen gradually, giving them complexity and freshness. The project has 50 hectares of its own vineyards on soils of silty sand, clay or limestone, most of them very close to the winery and planted with the area's clone of centuries-old vineyards (the purest Tempranillo from the Ribera del Duero). The winery is equipped with fully equipped facilities, consisting of a tasting room with a beautiful view of the barrel room, a terrace that is a veritable viewpoint over a sea of ​​vineyards and a hall with a spectacular window that links the modernity of the complex with the tradition from the vineyard, Cepa 21 is pure minimalism and efficiency.
