Vintage 2015 - Harvest of grapes from 40-year-old vines, classified as Very Good by the D. O. Rioja’s Regulatory Council. A dry year with high temperatures from May onwards. The rain at the end of September improved the physiological, phenolic and aromatic ripeness of the vines. A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% using Graciano and Mazuelo grape varieties, aimed at preserving the primary character of the fruit.
Ruby red and medium-high in intensity, this wine is clean, bright and produces dense tears. It has aromas of red and black fruits, liquorice, menthol and violet sweets in balance with biscuit, nutmeg, custard and cinnamon. It has good alcohol and acidity balance. It is round and of medium tannin intensity. Pairs well with spicy food, curry, and cebiche as well as traditional dishes, meat, and cured cheeses. Serve between 17ºC and 18ºC.
