Conde de San Cristobal Ribera del Duero Crianza 2016
The Conde de San Cristóbal Winery is found in the historic Pago de Valdestremero in the heart of Ribera del Duero. It was founded at the beginning of the century by the Mata family, owners of the Marqués de Vargas Winery in Rioja Alta.
It was named Bodegas y Viñedos del Conde de San Cristóbal in honour of their grandfather Pelayo, 8th Count of San Cristóbal, and the link with the first Count, Julián de San Cristóbal y Eguiarreta with the area, as oydor (judge) of the Royal Appellate Court of Valladolid.
Thanks to the 7 tiles of souls in the estate, as well as the extreme temperatures and mountain winds, the wines develop high acidity levels, giving them greater structure and longevity. These opulent wines are very fruity and full-bodied with the colour typical to this wine-producing region.
