Closure Type: Cork
Wine Style: Full Bodied
Grapes: Graciano, Mazuelo, Tempranillo
A modern style Rioja, despite the 30 months it spends in American oak and 36 months in bottle in complete darkness. A blend of Tempranillo with 4% Mazuelo and 6% Graciano.
Winemakers notes: Garnet red colour with medium to high intensity. Bright and in excellent condition. Elegant and complex nose. Aromas of ripe fruit, blackberry, plum, hints of cherry. Spicy with aromatic herbs such as rosemary, from our most outlying vineyards. There is a clear presence of select oak barrels. Hints of sweet spices, pastries and nougat combined with roasted flavours and cocoa. Long, persistent and full-bodied in the mouth. There is a crisp acidity, ensuring a long life, and tamed tannins. A wine in perfect condition which will evolve within the bottle in coming years. Perfect with red meats, cured cheeses, barbecues and game dishes. VEGAN Friendly.
