The Dominio de Atauta wines are decidedly different Riberas, boasting their own particular elegance and aromatic complexity. Their location in the far east of the denomination, in the province of Soria, at an altitude of almost 1,000 metres, where the harshness of winter is intense and long-lasting, is surely a reason for this; but figuring too are the characteristics of the vineyards, with very old, pre-phylloxera vines, and the winery's form of viticulture and production procedures, faithfully adhering to biodynamic methods. Dominio de Atauta, without mention of any other name, is their most representative wine, fruit of a selection of grapes from numerous micro-parcels. It picks up the aromas of this landscape, extremely austere and virtually abandoned nowadays, but in times past it must have been magnificent. Surprisingly, it's usually the poorest places that give rise to the richest, most astounding wines. You will find this a wine with intense aromas of red and black fruits, aromatic herbs (lavender, rosemary and camomile), spicy, toasty and smoky notes... It is an elegant wine, yet powerful too, and notably tannic while young. Consequently, there is no rush to open it, but let it mature; old vines don't understand the need for haste. A wine to cellar.
