A hugely satisfying and individual Rioja. 75% Tempanillo, 25% Garnacha & Graciano. Bright and clear red-cherry colour. The nose is intense, dominated by red fruits from the Garnacha along with raspberry and black licorice from the Tempranillo.Though a powerful and complex wine, there is a delicacy to the explosion of fruit. Notes of oriental spice and orange nod to the difference and individuality of this wine. Soft, fine tannins, yet firm enough to provide the wine with a good structure and the oak use is subtle and well integrated. Utterly delicious.
Sourced from plots Laguilera, Iscorta and La Rueda, carefully selected and picked by hand. The three varieties are vinified separately. The tempranillo goes through a cold maceration for two days in stainless steel vats where it stays through alcoholic fermentation, then the wine is transferred to 2 year old French oak barrels to go through malolactic fermentation and age for about 8 months. For the Graciano and Garnacha fermentation and ageing occurs in concrete vats.
