Cigales is a relatively small wine region located on the banks of the River Pisuerga, in the center of Castilla y Leon, northern Spain. Despite the relative recentness of its DO status, which it was granted in 1991, the region has a long history of winemaking. In keeping with its location, it produces numerous styles of wine, generally based around the Tempranillo and Garnacha, and Verdejo grapes.
Grapes for this wine are coming from “La Zapata”, “Los Mimbreros” and “Los Arenas” – Mucientes. Average age of vines are 55 years.
Bodegas Sinforiano was set up in 1966 when Sinforiano Vaquero and Daniela Gomez decided to carry on the family tradition.
From the initial beginnings of a small number of vines and an old underground cellar with concrete tanks, hard work and illusion have resulted in a vineyard that covers 80 Hectares and a modern cellar equipped with the latest technology
and with a capacity of 800 tonnes of grapes.
The vineyard is now run by Sinforiano’s and Daniela’s sons. They oversee the cultivation of the vines, the maturing of the red and rosé wines and national and international sales.
The wine was aged for period of 6 months in French and American oak.
