Of a deep and shiny ruby red color with shades of garnet, this wine shows very intense and complex on the nose where hints of this wine’s stay in oak stand out (coffee, spices, leather, toastiness) well integrated with stewed fruit and nuts. The first impressions on the palate are mellow, evolving towards a powerful and structured finish with a long aftertaste. Tannins show sweet, restrained and very well integrated into the wine’s structure. It is a wine with a great aging potential in bottle. Food pairing: Red meats, aged cheese.
Made with high-quality grapes harvested by hand from our better plots in Rioja Alavesa. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures with a frequent dropping of the juice over the skins in order to maximize extraction. Malolactic Fermentation is carried out in French and American oak barrels, and then, the wine is manually racked to stabilize and get rid of deposits. After the cask aging for 2 years, the wine is clarified with white of egg to achieve the silkiness and shiny final color. Aging in bottle 36 months.
Blend: 95% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano
