The five British wine critics and journalists known as the Wine Gang, who recently visited Ribera del Duero as guests of the Regulation Council, have awarded Ferratus 2008 93 points.
Taking into account the threshold established at the tasting held by the Regulation Council in September, this score out of 100 points means a gold medal.
The Wine Gang consists of five wine experts working for specialized blogs and media in the United Kingdom. They are among the best-known critics in Great Britain and they have a private association for which they publish reports and recommend the best wines on the national and international scene.
Of the 50 wines selected for the “Ribera Collection” tasted by this group, Ferratus 2008 was among the top ten. They found it to be a wine “with fruity notes; sweet, fresh strawberry flavor; soft, with few tannins, but vigorous and full of energy”. They also said its qualities made it “something exceptional”.
This wine also formed part of a masterclass given to experts and sommeliers in Edinburgh on 1 October as well as the Wine Gang’s Great Tasting, which took place in London on 16 October for about a hundred British wine sector professionals and journalists.
In addition, on 15 November, the Wine Gang will announce the selection of 12 wines from the “Ribera Collection” at its Christmas Party, an event attended by more than 700 wine lovers who follow their reviews.
