MXI 2016

The granddaughters of Familia Fernández Rivera present MXI 2016—a tribute to Ribera del Duero. MXI 2016 owes its name to the fact that the Tempranillo grapes with which it is made come from plots 10 and 11 of the estate. MXI 2016 was created as a new concept by the Tinto Pesquera winery. A wine made with dedication, affection and respect for the land, which welcomes the new generations of Familia Fernández Rivera.

TASTING NOTES
LOOK: Clear and shiny appearance. Intense violet colour.
SMELL: We find freshness, hints of red and black fruits, particularly blackberries and raspberries.
TASTE: Rounded tannins and just the right touch of acidity that enhances the wine, with refreshing varietal characteristics that reappear under the tongue after the first few seconds. It is very pleasing to the palate with each sip. The aftertaste is fruity, with blackberries and black fruits standing out.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: From 12 ºC to 14 ºC.
CONSUMPTION: Optimal from the moment of purchase. It is advisable to decant the wine 30 minutes before serving as there may be sediments that do not affect the quality of the wine, as they are a result of its natural production process.
