Antidoto Ribera del Duero 2016

SKU 8437012457164


Antídoto is located in the province of Soria, in perhaps the coolest microclimate of the Ribera del Duero. The resulting wines are considerably fresher and more elegant than is typical from the appellation. The 2016 vintage has given way to an Antídoto with a fair alcohol level (13º), a sweet acidity and polished finished tannins.

Wine AdvocateI saw some of the incredibly old vines that produce the red 2016 Antídoto, which sees a short maceration that in a cool year resulted in a lively, fresh and spicy red with very fine tannins and great balance. This is a great entry-level red, in line with the change they started in 2014. Here, they pressed the wine before it finished fermenting, and the end of the fermentation was like a white, with no skins—as with Le Rosé. It matured in 100% new 600-liter oak barrels, and that is also noticeable in the integration of the oak aromas and flavors. This is clearly the best Antídoto so far. Drink 2018 - 2022.
