About Epifanio Rivera
The Rivera-Aparicio family has been growing grapes and making wine in Pesquera del Duero for more than 3 generations. In 2004, the current generation of Epifanio, Borja and Santi built a new facility with modern equipment and the space necessary to be able to produce high quality wines commercially. The family owns 20 hectares of vineyards located in what it is arguably one of the best terroirs in the Ribera del Duero – the south facing slopes located on the west part of Pesquera del Duero. ...New York, New Jersey, California
A full-bodied wine with great intensity on the nose offering blackberries,
black licorice and mineral undertones. The oak is very well integrated
with the fruit adding very fine vanilla, toasty and spicy aromas.
Epifanio is concentrated and well structured with ripe tannins and great
acidity balancing the finish.
Wine Advocate"Austere in its aromas and flavors, this wine seems closed off, slowly revealing ripe black fruit, light scents of minerals and earthy touches that give it complexity and character. Its a big wine with youthful tannins, needing two to three years in bottle to develop. Cellar it, then serve with braised rabbit." - May 2015
