Bela, located in the premium D.O. Ribera del Duero, is the latest jewel to be added to the C.V.N.E. crown, representing our ongoing ambition to take our winemaking expertise to exciting new Spanish regions.
This Roble is an excellent introduction, packed with crunchy red fruits & bright acidity.
Bela is produced from hand harvested, carefully selected grapes from our own vineyards situated at more than 800m altitude in the village of Villalba de Duero. The soils are calcareous clay and sandy loam and the climate here is continental.
The 2019 campaign has brought together all the necessary conditions for the production of quality wines. Due to the absence of rains at key times, flowering and ripening, in the months of May and June, the quantity of grapes was reduced, obtaining small and loose bunches, less compact, increasing the concentratino of colour and aromas. The evolution of the grape during the vegetative cycle came with a slight delay, but the low production caused an earlier maturation. The harvesting of the grapes went smoothly and gradually, making a good selection of the grapes both in the field and in the winery.

The wine making process is traditional, with pre-fermentation cold maceration in stainless steel tanks, and, following fermentation, six months ageing in American and French, new and one-year old oak barrels.
