Alfredo Maestro, Lovamor, Castilla y Leon, Spain
Maestro Tejero winery in Peñafiel was born in 1998 in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. From 2000 to 2006 the winery grew, gradually adding other plots in Castrillo de Duero, Olmos de Peñafiel, Quintanilla de Arriba, Bocos de Duero, Olmedillo de Roa, and Arauzo de Salce. In 2007 the search for land on higher ground leads to the discovery of land in Valtiendas nearly 1,000 meters above sea level with old tempranillo vineyards planted on soils with boulders. The diversity of plants and soils give the wines a unique, distinct personality.
Lovamor has had seven days on the skins and is aged in chestnut barrels, bringing a slightly pinkish, peachy orange colour. It's fairly intense, with a slight haze with aromas of pear drop and banana. This wine is dry with high acidity, it has a salty character with some aromas of herbal lavender hints, followed by an orange zest quality. Superbly textured with a lasting finish.
