2019 Finca Villacreces Nebro
Finca Villacreces Nebro is only produced in good years (the last time was 2016). Only 1171 bottles available worldwide. The grapes come from a more than 100 year old single vineyard in the zone of Olmedillo (planted in 1917). The wine ages in 100% new Darnajou oak and this makes the wine firm and beautifully oaky.
This Nebro is a fantastic wine with its beautiful deep purple color. On the nose, this whopper has a flamboyant bouquet of mocha, coffee, spices, a floral note and wild blackberry. On the palate, the wine is full of layers of spicy black fruit and has excellent length and well-hidden tannins. In the aftertaste a subtle hint of toast. The wine is very concentrated and balanced, but it does need some time, so decanting is definitely recommended. This is a powerful XXL Ribera, so for lovers of a sturdy glass.
