It's hard to believe this is a 'second wine'; it is more serious and complex than many a Grand Vin in the region. So clean and pure, with incredible freshness and finesse; tannins with a reassuringly rustic grip, but the quality of the tannins is impeccable. This is Ribera but not as you know it, robust but refined with wonderful balance. Berry fruit, liquorice, spice and flowers, it is joyful and primary with a long life ahead. As the Clarete, this is a 'field blend' of mostly Tempranillo with Bobal, Albillo, Garnacha and others.

Dominio del Aguila

Ribera del Duero is fast becoming (if not already!) one of the top Spanish wine regions following Rioja and Priorat, home to icons like Vega Sicilia and Pingus. Dominio del Aguila has become the latest name to join the ranks, hardly surprising when wines from Dominio del Aguila are made by Jorge Monzon who had previously worked for none other than Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Vega Sicilia. It certainly also helps that their fruit comes from “one of the most impressive collections of old vines in Ribera del Duero” (Luis Gutiérrez) and are fermented with indigenous yeasts.   Dominio del Aguila is Pascual's own project in Ribera del Duero after collecting tiny parcels of old vines for 10 years. The freshness and purity of the estate’s wines captured the imaginations of the press, and they were widely proclaimed to be some of the most exciting new wines to be coming out of Spain.
