The 2011 Coleccion Privada is pure Tempranillo from two separate vineyards with a high active-chalk component, planted in 1957 and 1959 in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. For this wine they want to follow the traditional way, so 50% of the wine is obtained through carbonic maceration and the rest with destemmed grapes. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in new barrels, 50% French and 50% American where the wine ages for 16 months. It’s extremely young, bottled in June 2013, and still very fruity and primary, with brambly notes, a little savage, with well-integrated oak aromas and fine-grained tannins. It’s a quite powerful wine with good balancing acidity. I’d wait two or three years to start enjoying this wine. Drink 2015-2020. Dec 2013, www.robertparker.com
