Intense deep red with the distinctive purple tinge at the rim indicating its youth.
Pleasing on the nose with good aromatic intensity of red fruit backed by liquorice and a subtle hint of toasted wood.
On the palate it is clean, smooth and fresh with good persistence.
Bodegas Vega Real was founded in 1998. The winery and adjacent vineyards are located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, more than 2,400 feet above sea level. Bodegas Vega Real's optimum location is the perfect setting for the kind of low yields that produce highly concentrated flavors. The vineyards are planted with the indigenous Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) grapes and other international varieties. Vega Real Roble is carefully aged for 4 months in American Oak and for 3 months in bottle before release. This is a young, fresh wine of deep colors with aromas of wild berries and a hint of oak.
|Not all of the Duero “ribera,” or riverbank, is Ribera del Duero.
Our wines are produced in a specific region where the natural environment is unique and the land is special.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tempranillo grapes grow close to Penafiel near a gentle bend in the River Duero. In an area surrounded by centenary poplars, our grapes are nurtured to be adored.
Here we make our wines. Wines forged from an inimitable climate in a unique location. Wines that stand out for their intense colour, harmonious aromas and mouth-filling meatiness.
Tradition and love of wine flow between generations. Years of experience and current-day innovation emerge in the reinterpretation of what is already known and in the continuous search for new experiences.
Vega Real holds the secret to producing magical wines.
