Bardos Romantica is a red wine from Ribera del Duero, produced by Bodegas Bardos, belonging to the Vintae Group, which are known to produce wines in twelve different Spanish regions, such as the Hacienda López from Haro.
Romantica is made from 100% Tinta del País (Tempranillo). The grapes come from a rigorous selection of low yielding old vines located in the highlands of the central plateau in Onesimus Quintanilla (Valladolid).
The development of Bardos Romantica begins with a harvest during the last week of September and first week of October.
The grapes, once collected, are transported to the winery in boxes of 15 kilos and small trailers. Here a selection of bunches is made on tables. Subsequent fermentation and maceration is carried out in vats of 15,000 kg at a temperature of 28ªC for 3 or 4 weeks.
Once fermented and macerated, Bardos Romantica undergoes a malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, with a weekly beating and strict control of each barrel.
Finally, Bardos Romantica is aged for 14 months in barrels of one and two years in French oak, located in underground cellars where the temperature is maintained throughout the year at around 14ºC. Ars Romantica is a soft and original wine.
Coffee & plum aromas with a hint of dates & figs. On the palate, the flavours are mature and developed with a lovely concentration of dark fruits, well structured tannin and a dry fruity finish. While drinking well now, this wine has huge ageing potential.
