El Lagar de Isilla, Paraje Penalobos, Ribera del Duero, 2016

"Restrained aromas, quite elegant in red-berry fruit with a delicate spicy touch. Deliciously tense in mouth, with precise flavours and a multi-layered expression. Slow finish. Made with fruit from three vineyards with very low (less than 1000 kg/ha) yields. The white Albillo variety, interplanted with Tempranillo, provides freshness. From a remote area between Roa and Soria.Drinking Window 2020 - 2032 " 95/100, Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW, Decanter, Ribera del Duero: Top wines to buy now, June 2020
