Perched at an altitude of 3,200 feet above sea level in the Ribera del Duero, Dominio Basconcillos is one of the highest elevated wineries not only in Spain but in all of Europe. A family operation from top to bottom, the philosophy of this three-generation winery is simple: make the best possible wines while maintaining sustainable practices that always remain respectful of nature. These are hand-made, small production wines from a region that has flown under the radar with many American consumers and offers outstanding value for the price. Coming from 80+ year-old vines, the Reserva has already been awarded 94 points by Wine Spectator, and both of these bottlings are on Tim Atkin's list of best wines of the Ribera del Duero. We highly recommend grabbing a mixed case for your cellar for any fans of cellar-worthy wines with an impeccable balance of structure, fruit, minerality, and depth of character.
