CRAFTING AND AGING

An honest Rioja of extraordinary crafting that combines aromatic intensity and finesse.

Winemaking and aging:

  • Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature of 26ºC.
  • 20 day maceration period (skin contact).
  • Second fermentation in underground vats.
  • Barrel aging (oxidative) in oak barrels during 24 months.
  • Bottle aging (reductive) for a minimum of 16 months prior to release.

Tasting note

LOOK: Deep bright cherry red colour, clean with garnet rim.

AROMA & PALATE: On the nose it shows great balance and ripe fruit followed by fresh hints of noble oak. Structured and elegant tannins accompanied by sweet, aniseed-like notes for an intense and long finish.

Food pairing

The perfect accompaniment to red grilled or barbequed meats, stews and slightly chilly dishes. Fresh yet complex pairs beautifully with a broad range of cheeses.
