The Dominio Romano challenge
This wine reflects a unique expression of the vineyard: 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 smaller and more concentrated grapes; as the vines must fight to find sufficient water to survive. Terroir, roots, drainage, thermal contrasts, maturation, aroma, concentration… the R factor.
