Semele is a red wine from D.O. Ribera del Duero made by Montebaco, a winery that was founded in the mid-80s thanks to Manuel Esteban and his family. It was not until 1994 that the first wine from the winery was made.
The climate of this zone is extreme continental, characterized by dry summers, hard and long winters and a low rainfall. There is a large thermal oscillation between stations and, also, between day and night.
This wine is a blend of Tempranillo and Merlot from the Monte Alto farm, a vineyard of 50 hectares of 20-year-old vines. The vineyard was planted on clay-calcareous soil, at about 850-900 meters above sea level, between the municipalities of Valbuena and Pesquera de Duero.
