  • Intense, deep cherry-red with a garnet-red rim. Intense and complex aromas, dominated by fruit (blackberry jam, raspberries, and orange zest) reveal underlying spicy and balsamic notes of cigar box, cedar licorice, cloves, chocolate mints, and toasted wood. Elegantly refined entry. Fresh and lively in the mouth, nicely balanced with polished, silky tannins and a gentle, delicate finish. Very long aftertaste, with citrus and balsamic notes that provide long, complex final sensations.

Following meticulous sorting on optical selection tables, only the perfectly ripe grapes were fermented, using indigenous yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation took place in tank and lasted 21 days, followed by malolactic conversion. In the following January, the finest wines were selected to age in American oak barrels which had an average age of 4.5 years. After four years in barrel and traditional rackings -by hand and candlelightevery six months, the final blend was bottled and received four years' bottle-ageing.

Silky, elegant and full of finesse showing great aromatic complexity with notes of wild strawberry, red cherry and plum, layered with tobacco, brioche, vanilla, caramel, cedar and cinnamon blossom through to an everlasting finish.

The Tempranillo grapes are carefully selected from vineyards in Villalba, Briñas and Rodezno. A small proportion of Graciano comes from the Montecillo vineyard in Fuenmayor, which adds backbone to the blend. La Rioja Alta is committed to respecting and protecting the environment. In the vineyard, treatments are limited, investments have been made into clean energy sources and water is reused. Insect shelters have been installed in vineyards, promoting environmentally-friendly plant health defence while increasing the biodiversity in the vineyard. The grapes are handharvested at optimal ripeness.
