PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Red wines from Ribera del Duero are among the most sought-after Spanish wines in the world, taking the native Tempranillo to soaring heights. This noble grape, which makes soft and subtle wine in Rioja, is transformed into bold, luscious, concentrated juice in Ribera del Duero. The region is the ideal wine destination for those who love modern-style, new-world reds but are eager to explore European regions.

Bodegas Ismael Arroyo-ValSotillo is a family-owned winery in Sotillo de la Ribera, located in the province of Burgos in the northeast corner of Ribera del Duero. Ismael Arroyo is a pioneer winemaker in the region and was instrumental in the establishment of Ribera del Duero as a DO back in 1982. The winery has 25 hectares of vineyards spread in 12 different plots all around the winery in Sotillo de la Ribera.*

The ValSotillo is crafted from 100% Tempranillo that is fermented in stainless steel and aged for 6 months in a combination of French and American oak. Full-bodied and silky-textured, it has aromas of red and black fruits that follow through on the palate: blackberries, cassis, and black cherries. Notes of vanilla, leather, cedar, and baking spice unfold layer by layer and bring the wine to a long and satisfying finish. 

93 points, James Suckling:
"This is really well done with dark cherries, mulberries, licorice, and tar. Very structured, refined, and elegant on the palate, where edgy tannins gather pretty forest fruit together and mold them into fine, pastry-like sheets." (6/19)
