Grape Variety:93% Tempranillo 7% Graciano
Controlled alcoholic fermentation on a temperature of 24ºC, in contact with the skin for 12 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in underground storage tanks, and afterwards racked in semi-new American oak barrels of the highest quality for 18 months. The wine afterwards stays in bottle for 6 months before leaving the winery.
COLOUR: Of intense cherry-red colour and medium-high robe, very clean and vivid which indicates its youth. AROMA AND TASTE: On the nose, it is very potent, fruity, sweet, on a very clean background of American wood with coconut and tones of blackberry in the finish and a touch of eucalyptus which makes it more profound and complex. In the mouth very widely ranged and expressive, it has perfectly integrated the combination of stewed fruit compote with wood. A long aftertaste where wood of an excellent quality predominantly appears and wraps around the ripe, outspoken and explosive fruit.
Ideal with stews, sausages and any type of meat and roasts from the Mediterranean cuisine. Serving temperature: 18ºC.
