2014 Preludio, Sei Solo

2014 Preludio, Sei Solo

Ref: SEIS140
Red  |  Still  |  15% ABV

Wine maker of 30 vintages at Vega Sicilia Mariano Garcia and Javier Zaccagnini started the celebrated Ribera del Duero winery Aalto. Subsequently, Javier founded Sei Solo, inspired by drinking a bottle of La Tâche. He wondered whether he could tame the natural wildness and muscle of Ribera del Duero red wine to bring some of the elegance of fine burgundy. The fruit for Sei Solo project comes from La Hora village which is arguably the highest quality, most powerful village in in Ribera del Duero (Pingus, Pesus, Aalto PS, etc are all based on La Hora fruit).

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"100% old-vine Tempranillo (60-100 years). Aged in French demi-muids (600 litres).
This is a barrel sample but pretty much the final wine. Deep purple crimson. Very ripe dark fruit, dark and spicy – fresh but with notes of fruit cake, too. Incredible power and concentration, giving fabulous dark fruit and a thick chewy texture, all rounded and chocolate-textured. Still has remarkable freshness given all that concentration. Big, dark but luxuriant. Black fruit – more blackberry than cassis – on the finale."

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
