Alfredo Maestro 2019 Vina Almate Tinto Fino

100% Tempranillo This is an easy-drinking fruit-forward style of Tempranillo that, like a Frappato, could handle a slight chill on it quite well. The nose shows soft sweet cherry with light raspberry, and some alpine underbrush. The palate is light and lively with an initial pop of raspberry giving way to garrigue and minerality. D&M Tasting Notes

Viña Almate is the first wine that Alfredo made (named after himself: Al-Ma-Te) and is his entry-level Duero wine. This cuvee is made from fruit sourced from various plots of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), of varying vine ages located, in Valtiendas at 1,000 meters elevation, as well as Peñafiel, at 700 meters. The wine is fermented in steel vat with 15-20 days of maceration and 50-100% stem inclusion depending on vintage, and raised over winter with one racking: unfined, unfiltered, and no added SO2. The result is a very pure and classic medium to full bodied Duero wine with notes of red fruits, spice, flowers, and minerals; a great wine to pair with grilled and roasted meats.

“Wine made with only grapes, well-kept vineyards, and healthy land.” This is the mantra of Castellano winegrower Alfredo Maestro, a bright light amongst an abyss of industrially farmed, over-ripe, over-oaked, and over-manipulated wine-scape that is the Ribera del Duero these days.
