BODEGAS Comenge Biberius 2019
The landscape can also be drunk.
When, back in 1999, Jaime Comenge started working on his desire to make wine, his ideas were clear: the vineyard is the fundamental pillar of the character and personality of a wine and it therefore needs to be considered in each stage of the winemaking process. With this idea in mind, Bodegas Comenge has created its own winemaking philosophy based on innovation and research to express the true charm of our vineyard in the purest and most genuine way possible.
2019 Comenge Biberius
This is the winery’s youngest wine. We made a joven wine for the first time in 2008. When thinking what to call it, we remembered the Emperor Tiberius, who camped for years on these banks of the River Douro and whom his troop nicknamed “Biberius” (drinker of wines) as a result of his passion for the local wines.
To make the wine, we use Tempranillo grapes from our vineyards of Los Silos and Carrapiñel, both in Pesquera de Duero. Planted on limestone soils and grown according to the principles and practices of organic farming, they produce grapes with intense bouquets each year. We then add grapes from other vineyards where the vines are grown according to conventional methods, planted in La Horra and Quintana del Pidio, two municipalities of long-standing winegrowing tradition. The must is fermented with our own, unique and personal yeast, selected and isolated at the vineyard around the winery since 2004.
Tasting Notes: This wine reflects the busy, fresh and lively character of the Tempranillo variety.
