Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Ceres Crianza 2017


Available for:
Asenjo & Manso is straight up the real thing. They sit in the best zone of Ribera (la Horra)… they don’t overoak their wines… they show rusticity while still being beautifully elegant… and the Ansenjo family are downright world-class people. Jesus Asenjo is the Mayor of La Horra(!) and he has farmed the fields his grandfather planted 110 years ago. Everyone loves him.. and his eyes show his sincerity in what they do. Natalia is the winemaker, and she has the same passion and drive as Jesus has, to make the most typical Ribera possible with their incredibly deep and intense fruit. When her ‘youngest old’ fruit (50 year old vines) comes in for the Ceres Crianza.. she uses stainless for fermentations as to not oak-bomb her wines, and then ages it in American and French wood that she uses for the flagship ‘Silvanus’ of the estate, for a year. So much texture and fruit that is balanced by great tannins and acid. ‘Ceres’ is named after the greek goddess of agriculture and fertility… a pretty great combo. Both of these wines show Ribera for what we all want Tempranillo to still be… not just some grape that is trying to get famous for its layers of manipulation.
