Rento 2011

2011: Moderate winter with a short period of frosts and little rainfall. Mild spring, moderately rainy and hot towards the end. Mild and dry start to summer, very hot at the end with acute drought. Superb harvesting conditions at the beginning of October, with good ripening owing to the high temperatures and healthy conditions thanks to the absence of rainfall.

Vineyard
The Hito Corto vineyards have been cared for with such devotion and affection that they are well worthy of being included in the history of RENTO. It is the only Grupo Matarromera estate to be located on the left, southerly bank of the river Duero (Quintanilla de Arriba). It is a very special vineyard: no chemical products are used in its day-to-day cultivation.

The wine
The grapes harvested on the Hito Corto estate boast exceptional sugar levels and colour intensity, which subsequently manifest themselves in the wine. The grapes are subject to twofold selection, first bunch by bunch and then grape by grape. Rento 2011 was aged for 18 months in 50 barrels of mainly French oak, from such prestigious coopers as Taransaud, Berthomieu, Boutes and Cantón. The barrels are stacked in only one layer and are refilled by hand.

It has an intense colour with a dark cardinal-red tone and significant purplish hues. The
bouquet is full, honest and very complex, ripe black fruit predominating amid a multitude
of aging notes; cedar wood, liquorice, India ink... It has a good structure, stylish and silky,
with a powerful body and a notable framework of robust, well-controlled tannins with an
enduring finish.
