The story: Bodegas Carramimbre is located on the El Pignón estate, 3 kilometers from the Peñafiel municipality in the province of Valladolid. Founded in 1997 by a group of families with a long history of vineyards in the Ribera del Duero area. Inside the winery, the wines age in barrels made of French and American oak to forge a flavor that is both intense and pronounced.
Why you’ll love me: Cherry red in color with ruby tones and violet highlights at the rim. On the nose are intense spicy notes of cinnamon, peppermint, and spearmint with touches of vanilla toned with ripe fruit. In the mouth, the wine opens strong, characterized by the tannins, which pave the way for the wine’s mouth-filling quality. It is generous and balanced, the finish dominated by the spicy and lingering red fruit flavors.
