An unique Environment

Milsetentayseis is Fuentenebro: a product of its unique landscape characterized by extreme altitude and distinct soil. It is a bold wine with defined character that is designed to evolve over time. Its freshness and intense mouthfeel are representative of a modern style, moving away from excess, in search of the elegance, smoothness and balance found in the great wines of the world.

The balance of 2018

VITICULTURE

Climatologically, the vintage began with snowfall and abundant rain throughout winter lasting until the late spring.

As a result, water reserves were fully replenished after being depleted from an extremely dry 2017. By the end of April, budding had generally begun in the surrounding Fuentenebro area. As is usual in the Ribera del Duero, mid-May posed great risk of frost, but consistent high winds in the area kept it at bay and the vineyards were unaffected. Spring extended into June with rain and cool temperatures; unusual for this time of year. Summer arrived late, at the beginning of July, and was characterized by dry, hot conditions allowing for the fruit to reach optimal ripeness. The harvest ran from October 5th-October 13th. .

A HIGH ALTITUDE RIBERA DEL DUERO

MINERAL RICHNESS

Fuentenebro is considered to be one of the most representative and emblematic sites in all of the Ribera del Duero.

Altitud

An ancient mine legacy

Riqueza mineral

Situated next to an ancient stone mine, its reddish soil continues to benefit from leftover mineral deposits including quartz, mica, and feldspar. Poor soil, but rich in minerals, in an environment that pushes the climactic limits for viticulture. The small plots spread across Fuentenebro have transcended time to offer authentic raw-material of incomparable intensity and purity. Milsetentayseis is an ancestral vineyard that produces a freshness obtained from grapes grown between the valleys and the hillsides, snaking their way up the mountain to reach over a thousand meters of altitude..
