Professional Wine Reviews for Alonso Del Yerro Tinto 2013

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 2013 Crianza was produced with Tempranillo grapes from their organically-farmed vineyards in the village of Roa in Ribera del Duero. It fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak vats and barriques between nine and 15 months depending on the lot. It has bright red fruit and floral aromas, with an herbal twist, in a Rhône way. It has fine tannins and a polished texture, quite round, approachable and pleasant. The only thing I was expecting was a tad more freshness. But this is a great 2013 and always a sure value.

Winery Alonso Del Yerro

Region: Castilla Y Leon

In the heart of Spain, we find the beautiful - if somewhat arid and occasionally desolate - wine region of Castilla y Leon. Castilla y Leon is the largest wine region in Spain, covering a huge plateau rising up from its surroundings, and characterized by its dry and cracked soils, and intense summer heat. Such weather conditions can often make viticulture difficult, but the wineries which work in the region have generations of experience and expertise when it comes to making the most of the beautiful red and white wine grape varietals which grow well there. From Tempranillo to Verdejo, Castilla y Leon really has something to suit every palate, and offers the world a range of wines full of the passion and flavors of Spain.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
