Purgatori is a material witness of the passage of the Benedictine order through a land that was their penance and discovery: an extreme climate and a special terroir for a superior wine. In 1770, the Montserrat Abbey ordered the construction of the estate in L’Aranyó, an inhospitable place far from the monastery, in this area known for its extreme climate and harsh living conditions. Disobedient friars were sent there, who did penance by tilling this land. They discovered a terroir with good potential to make a superior wine. According to legend, large barrels would mysteriously disappear. Some said that angels took them to the heights. Since 2012, we have continued his legacy by producing a wine with great personality, fresh and elegant.

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
