Deep, black cherry in colour. Aromas of red fruit with oaky toffee hints from the ageing in French barrels give way to a sweet and fruity wine on the palate.

With elements of ripe fruits and liquorice, this wine has a pleasant and soft finish.

Located in Quintanilla de Onesimo, the stunning estate was purchased by Lalo Anton of Izadi in 2003 and the resulting wines, made by winemaker Angél Ortega, are deep, dark and focused in style. The vineyards are now farmed organically, with canopy management and natural treatments used instead of artificial chemicals. The myriad combinations of sand, gravel, shingle and quartz soils encourage low vigor in the vines (yields are around three tons per hectare) and different flavor profiles… Read more

Rich yet lively, this red delivers ripe flavors of boysenberry and black plum, backed by leafy and orange peel notes and a minerally, smoky finish. Ripe tannins are well-integrated and crisp. Fruity acidity keeps this fresh. Drink now through 2025.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2015)
The just-bottled 2015 Pruno is a young, fruit-driven and straightforward blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from young and older vines in their 63-hectare organically-farmed estate, located around the winery by the river Duero. 2015 was a very warm year and the wine is ripe without excess, juicy and tasty, with a minty and chocolate touch perhaps from the one year it spent in oak barrels. No less than 395,000 bottles and 2,015 magnums were produced in 2015, so this should be readily available, and as always represents a good value in Ribera del Duero.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2014)
Tight. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when tasting this tense, fresh, vibrant Ribera. Initially, the flavors are ripe and unctuous, but the acidity drives them into retreat, so they finish shyly, letting the freshest voices be heard. This is young, strong and impetuous. It needs time in the cellar."

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2013)
A firm and silky red with chewy tannins and pretty fruit. Full body, seamless tannins and a fruity finish.

Rafael Palacios As Sortes 2020
This is a serious wine, characterized by its balance of richness and fresh acidity–and a wonderful example of Godello’s potential when placed in the right hands. Structured and precise, it displays a distinctive minerality that tells of its mountainous origins.

A beautiful amber-honey color, it shows excellent fruit on the palate, tropical fruits - especially pineapple - but at the same time has a long dry finish, typical of the house style you find at La Rosa.
