An intense cherry red Tempranillo oak, with garnet edges. On the nose it is powerful and balanced, with aromas of ripe fruit, toasty notes, vanilla and spices. On the palate it is velvety, round and persistent. The distinctive elegance of the finest Ribera del Duero red wines is revealed here. After spending 5 months in French oak and American oak barrels and just as much rest in the bottle in the wine cellar, Cuatro Rayas Ribera del Duero has conveyed the essence of a piece of this land, clearly defined by its terroir.
Cuatro Rayas was founded in 1935. Winemaker Angel Calleja belongs to the first group of winemakers from the 'Vid School of Madrid', where he graduated in 1975. He immediately took over the technical department from Cuatro Rayas. Since then he has continued to grow as a winemaker, and the wines have grown in quality. Angel Calleja is currently one of the most esteemed winemakers not only in the area, but nationally. He is a member of the Regulatory Boards of Rueda, Toro and also Cigales. The vineyard is situated on typical terraced land, with a sandy loam structure. The first 30cm are composed of sandy soil. Below is a high concentration of clay. The soil is poor in organic matter and very warm due to the high concentration of boulders and sand in the upper layers. Excellent wines with a perfect price / quality ratio.
