The challenge of Dominio Romano
A wine that reflects the unique expression of the terrroir of the Lucio Vine. A white sandy vineyard with a profound gravel layer situated in the Pago de Carronda (the freshest zone of the Ribera del Duero). The particularities of that vineyard, one of the oldest of the region, allow to obtain smaller and more concentrated berries because the vines suffer a lot in search of water which they need in order to survive.
