2017 DEHESA DE LOS CANONIGOS CRIANZA 15 MESES, RIBERA DEL DUERO SPAIN
Presently Dehesa de los Canónigos is an estate made up by six hundred hectares, out of which seventy are covered by vineyard. Among its vineyards Tinto Fino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Albillo varieties can be found. It is worth mentioning that the winery, along with its parent company, was the first one to plant vines when the Duero’s area was being repopulated. This took place when the Abbot of Santa María de Valbuena was heading the abbey for third time, with vines from Burgundy. Upon the Dissentailment of the Church property, it landed in private hands but the fruit quality was maintained.
