La Cometa is the flagship and representation of all of the oldest vineyards at Quinta de Milu. In the cellar they are made and all plots are raised separately and during that indefinite decide what wines will be part of the Cometa. They will be more structured and powerful but discard those without elegance. The Comet is a wine for the Ribera del Duero with a natural elegance born of altitude (more than 900 m.)
Quinta de Milu is the project of the winemaker Germán R. Blanco in Ribera del Duero, Spain; a project on a small scale to produce wines That aspires, that transmit the location they come from, a small town called La Aguilera, situated in the province of Burgos in the northeast of Spain.
From old “Tempranillo” vines, cultivated in a traditional way with their utmost respect for natural environment, they work vine-to-vine with each micro-fermentations in cask, keeping our presence to a minimum. We Have revived some of the traditional practices: such as treading the grapes, as we like our wines to best express themselves, letting matters take course.
The wines are aged in different types and sizes of casks and barrels, made from a variety of woods. No two vintages are the same, and of course no two wines are the same in the winery.
