Asenjo & Manso was founded in 2004 in the village of La Horra of Ribera del Duero. Although the bodega is young, the wines are amazingly deep and complex due to the 50-100 year old family vineyards. Their production is completely organic, with certification in some of their vineyards already. Jésus Asenjo (the grandson of Tiofilo Asenjo, who first planted the estate's vines) has been in the fields his entire life, and tends to the vines himself year-round, and even his elderly father still walks the fields that Tiofilo once planted. Precise and careful practices are carried out in their pristine facility by Natalia Calleja, where she believes in only stainless steel fermentations before oak aging, a light hand during the maturation, and creating wines that show the loving effort of the family estate. Asenjo & Manso Ceres is a small production wine made from 50-year-old Tinta del País (Tempranillo) vines, named after the Greek God of the harvest and the land. A delicious style of Ribera del Duero that offers dense fruit and supple oak content, but also integrates the classic markers of the region. After both fermentations are complete in only stainless steel, the wine is moved into new and used French and American oak barrels for a full year. A beautiful wine results, full of rich leather and tobacco notes, while showing spiciness and dark fruits, as well as hints of eucalyptus and pepper. Clean oak tones lead to a satisfying finish of red and black fruits, and all of which is accompanied by ample acidity and gripping tannings. A&M Ceres is a confident and very well-balanced red that will grace a table of red meats perfectly, especially the local favorite: lamb.
