The Dominio Romano challenge
This wine reflects a unique expression of Lucio’s Vineyard. In the coolest zone of the Ribera you find this vineyard of an incomparable terroir: layers of white sand on limestone/marl concretions. These characteristics enable us to obtain small and concentrated grapes; as the vines have to fight and go deep to find water to survive.
Terroir, roots, drainage, thermal contrasts, maturation, aroma, concentration… the R factor.
