2014 D. Ventura "Viña do Burato" Ribeira Sacra

SKU #1250916 91 points Vinous

 Brilliant ruby-red. Musky, spice-accented red berries and floral oils on the perfumed nose. Vibrant, sharply focused flavors of bitter cherry and redcurrant deepen and stretch out with aeration. Reveals a sweeter, darker berry character on the persistent finish, which displays excellent delineation, supple tannins and a late jolt of candied violet. All stainless steel here. (JR)  (1/2016)

A project of Ramon Losada, with some guidance early on from the great Gerardo Mendes (of Do Ferreiro fame), these MencĂ­a-based reds grown in the steeper Ribera Sacra D.O. are truly expressive, terroir-driven wines. Bright red fruits show a crisp minerality, as well as wonderful fruit purity. 2014 is the best vintage of this wine that I can recall; it's all crunchy red fruit - a super quaffable red and a real winner.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
