Bodega Réquiem Hispania – Réquiem
Tinto Fino. D.O. Ribera del Duero.
Requiem Hispania is a Garage Winery. An independent air-conditioned cellar contains all our 150 selectioned French oak barrels from the finest woods from the very best French producers. A central space is where the stainless steel deposits are located. Another small space for our bottles , a laboratory and a couple of things more.
Is a Boutique Winery located in Peñafiel which produce Ribera del Duero wines using 100% Tinto fino (Tempranillo). Grapes come from very old globes pruned vineyards, from exclusive plots, with different orientations and soils; sandy and claim-loamy soils from 70 to 120 years old.
The winemaking is mainly based on taking advantage of the quality of the grapes using as less technology and chemistry as possible. So, grapes are handpicked in small 12 Kg. boxes and transported by a refrigerated truck; later on, come directly inside the stainless still deposits with no sulphurous added: 100% grape.
Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are spontaneous and controlled by temperature.
After macerating for 20 days, our wine remains in deposits with lees and making a weekly battonage until they are deposited in barrels at the beginning of the year.
