Wine from Sei Solo Bodegas y Vinedos

Sei Solo and Preludio represent the artistic vision of Javier Zaccagnini. After 20 years of experience in Ribera del Duero, he spent six years with the Quality Control Regulatory Board (Consejo Regulador) of the Appellation Contrôlée, and then the subsequent 14 years as director of Aalto, a flagship of Ribera del Duero that Javier co-founded with the great Mariano Garcia, the man who famously made Vega Sicilia for over 30 years.

Sei Solo is named after Johann Sebastian Bach's - Javier's favorite composer - six solos for violin, honoring his BMW 1001-1006 violin sonatas. In fact, their wine labels are manuscript letters from J.S. Bach

Sei Solo Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Sei Solo Ribera del Duero Tempranillo is made from 100 percent Tempranillo. 

Named after Bach's six solos for violin, Sei Solo represents Javier Zaccagnini's vision of elegant, high-toned Ribera del Duero from the powerful, mineral soils of La Horra and the top vineyards of Barroso and Acos that are planted with old vines of 60 to 90 years old.


Displaying wonderful clarity of fruit and excellent transparency to the multi-layered flavors, there is no new oak influence on this at all, resulting in a wine that has nothing to hide behind. Deft tannins support a taut, mineral, dark fruited wine that, while tight knit and brooding is tremendously refined and vital and not at all tiring to drink. A Ribera built on elegance, refinement and nuance that promises great things for the future. A star is born.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks of small capacity, adapted to the size of every vineyard, allowing to do individual fermentation for every different plot.
Short and careful pumping over, never reaching high temperatures to respect the fruit and avoid over extraction of the tannins, gaining the full potential of elegance and finesse of the old vines. After alcoholic fermentation the wines are racked to two-year-old French barrels to undergo malolactic at low temperature ( less than 14 degrees C) . This process takes several months. When malolactic is finished, the wines are racked to 600 liter big barrels of French oak, which are not new to avoid a loss of balance and style of the wines. Aging in barrels for 20 months.

Review:

"Vines as old as 60-90 years are used for this vibrant 100% Tempranillo. Fermented in stainless steel and aged for 20 months in neutral, 600-liter big barrels, the wine is named for Bach’s six solos for violin. Dynamic and muscular, with graphite-laden, firm tannins, a chorus of black plum, blackberries, and a true “soil” component play on our heart strings. Rich, igniting the mineral soils of the region, its music is illuminating, but its sense of place is down to earth."
