Soil: The D.O. Rueda is located in the central area of the depression formed by the river Duero, on a smooth plateau blown by Atlantic winds. The area has alluvial and flood terraces on the banks of the river Duero and its tributaries, the rivers Trabancos, Zapardiel and Adaja. Dark grey-brown soils, rich in calcium and magnesium, stony but easy to farm, with good ventilation and draining, and limestone outcrops on the hilltops. Permeable and healthy, their texture varies from sandy-loamy to loamy.
The pH level of the soil is between 7 and 8. On the surface, this geological substratum has gradually evolved into dark grey-brown soils on autochthonous stony deposits, which, in turn, have led to the typical “gravelly” soils present in the best vineyards in the D.O. Rueda.
Vinification: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers fitted with temperature control devices, cold-treatment machines in some cases, and vacuum filters that clean the must without taking away the nutrients necessary for the yeasts. The wine is now clean and pale, having been filtered and having undergone quick cold decantations.
Enjoy together with: Puoltry, sea food, fish, salads, Italian salads, Mediterranean food.
