We're 1000m above sea level here in Ribiera Del Duero, so searingly hot days and freezing AF nights, meaning big body but acid to back it up. 

 

This is rustic but in the best way. The fruitiness feels feral and wild, like you'd find on a walk on holiday, rather than unripe but perfect looking like you'd find in the supermarket...

There's a nice mineral streak but you really taste the 'malo' here (malolactic fermentation in the winery causes a buttery taste) that's uncommon for a red. The buttery vibe melds with the rich red and dark fruits evoking a raspberry tart flavour.
