Familia Comenge pays tribute to the great ageing wines of the Ribera del Duero region. If the Tempranillo variety of this vineyard, Pago de los Ismas, is characterised by anything at all, it is its excellent capacity for ageing. The vineyard was planted in 1982, coinciding with the creation of the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin. Its excellent location, a steep slope of clay and calcareous soil affords excellent ripening and quality for the grapes each year.

After 25 months in new and one-year-old barrels of French oak, the wine achieves its delicious texture, intensity, elegance and persistence. Tasting notes: Medium-high depth, black cherry in the glass with garnet highlights, bright and very clean. Intense and spicy on the nose. Prominence of liquorice, ripe red fruit, fennel, aromatic herbs and balsamic sensations.

The bouquet of this Tempranillo leaves hardly any room for hints of spices from the oak, caramel, vanilla, cocoa... The mouth is gentle and big, but not opulent, showing the great quality of its very fine and sweet tannins at all times. The nose is somewhat less fruity and more spicy; we again come across the ripe red fruit, but also vanilla, caramel, scrubland herbs and liquorice, adding complexity to the wine overall. The aftertaste is very long and silky, leaving a fresh sensation that makes the wine easy to drink.
