Carramimbre, or ‘wicker path’ in ancient Spanish, is the name of one of the vineyards owned by Bodegas Pignon in the Ribera del Duero; situated at the bottom of a short hill, where an ancient castle still stands. Some of the vines here are as old as 50 years old.
The vineyards sit on the ‘Golden Mile’ of the Ribera del Duero (which is, in fact, 15km long) stretching along the Duero valley from the town of Peñafiel, down to Tudela de Duero. Here, the Bodegas rubs shoulders with many prestigious and iconic neighbours (Alion, Vega Sicilia etc)
Grape Varieties: 95% Tempranillo, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Tasting Notes: This is a wine with body, well structured, potent, tannic and long-lasting with a long finish which recalls notes of leather and roasts. This wine has good ageing potential.
