SPLENDORE is a wine from Bodegas J.A. Calvo Casajús. Behind it all is José Alberto Calvo Casajús, a winemaker following great family tradition from the municipality of Quintana del Pidio, belonging to the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin (Denominación de Origen).
SPLENDORE has been made with grapes from the vineyards of Quintana del Pidio, with controlled production of approximately 2.5 kg of grapes per vine, and is 80% from the native variety Tempranillo (Tinta del País) and 15% Albillo.
In the wine cellar, the destemmed grapes pass directly through the press and the fermentation is kept cold for 4 days in small capacity stainless steel tanks, which helps us maintain rigorous control of temperature during fermentation. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation is done, it is bottled. It is ideal as an aperitif and to accompany huevos fritos (Spanish fried eggs), pasta, rice and salads. To fully enjoy this wine it is recommended to consume it between 8 or 9 ºC (46 to 48 ºF).
Casajús or Casajús Winery, in Spanish: Bodegas Casajús, is a Spanish fine winery. It is situated in the town of Quintana del Pidio (province of Burgos, Spain), in the Protected Designation of Origin (Denominación de origen) Ribera del Duero. Over generations, the Calvo and Casajús families developed their own family
wines, although it was not until 1993 that José Alberto Calvo Casajús founded the winery.
The winery gained international recognition thanks to the great appraisals from the American wine
magazine, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate.
In 2013 the winery received the highest scores in Ribera del Duero from the British critic, Neal Martin, for the American magazine Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate. The NIC 2009 wine was awarded 97 points and Casajús Viñedos Antiguos wine received 95 points, this triggered the receipt of international media attention.
