Cigales

This important yet misunderstood region area is still largely associated with its original rosé wine, mostly sold in the north of Spain. It is a little known fact that other nearby areas, such as Ribera de Duero, produced wines of the same hue but that they never attained a similar level of popularity.

Stony slopes descending towards the Duero river and a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes are its main hallmarks. The 

 vineyard area has strong links with the city of Valladolid, even though its development has not greatly enhanced its standing, unlike, for instance, the city vineyards of the Graves in Bordeaux. At first, Telmo and Pablo were seduced by the idea of developing a rosé wine from the area, but the quality of the raw material encouraged them to create a young and simple red, based on the traditional blend of varieties.
