GRAPES: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo.
Medium intensity ruby in colour with a pink hint at the rim.
The nose shows good aromatic intensity with aromas of fresh wild berries and liquorice which are typical of wines made from Tempranillo grapes. These are well integrated with the sweet spice aromas from the barrel ageing process.
The palate is soft and marked by silky tannins and a long, fruity and youthful finish.
This wine pairs well with all types of meat, fish, stews and cheeses.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were handpicked from our vineyards in the Rioja Alta sub-region, and then fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. Following full malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked to 225l American and French oak barrels where it was aged for 18 months and during which it acquired typical notes from both types of wood.
After clarifying naturally, the wine was bottled and placed in our underground cellars where it continued to evolve and refine for a minimum of 18 months until being released to the market.
