The rufete is the indigenous variety and predominant in the Sierra de Salamanca PDO area, located in the south of the province. The rufete grape is born from old vines to make young wines. The result of this variety are fresh wines that preserve the origin of its soils, slate and granite.
Rufete is something of a rarity, making delicate wines with firm tannins and brisk acidity. It’s usually used as a blending component, so this is a rare chance to taste it straight up. From very low-yielding vines, it's full of red berry aromas, with a balsamic character to the freshness. Needs time to smooth out.
