Antidoto Ribera del Duero 2020
The 2019 Antídoto fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 600-liter French oak barrels, 15% of them new, for ten to 12 months. It's a tight and powerful vintage, ripe and with abundant tannins and without the spark I found in the 2020. After some time in the glass, the wine developed some floral aromas, but the palate remained more austere. This needs powerful food.
Features bright boysenberry and cherry notes edged with anise, graphite and citrus details, with lively acidity and moderate tannins. Drink now through 2025.
