Bodega Cepa 21 Hito Ribera del Duero

Tempranillo from Ribera Del Duero – full of charm and character. 

Bodegas Cepa 21 is a boutique winery in Castrillo de Duero, a village in Valladolid in the area known as the Golden Mile. They combine tradition and modernity with a true commitment to enhancing the best characters of their terroir through the Tempranillo variety. Winemaker Jose Moro’s disruptive spirit is a result of his ancestor’s legacy, which motivates the quality styles he creates today. With 50 hectares of their own vineyards on silty sand, clay and limestone at 750-900m above sea level, facing north helping to ensure the fresh complex wines.

The Hito is an excellent wine from Ribera del Duero demonstrating the classically powerful style of Tempranillo. The wine is made in steel before spending 8 months in French oak for added texture and complexity. The nose is expressive with the varietal aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant with light floral hints and subtle oak character of toast and vanilla. It has great balance and structure with rich fine tannins to balance the vibrant fruit.   

Hito red wine is versatility made wine. It is the youngest range of red wines from Bodegas Cepa 21, but it is already going strong, and this is reflected in its combination of nuances, its modernity and the elegance that is noticeable in each glass.
