General information

The Barón de Chirel wine arose in 1986 as a result of an experimental production from a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years old, of very low yield and high quality. From the results of this test, the one that will be the forerunner of what could be called Rioja's new era wines is born.This wine is produced in a very limited way in only the great vintages, where the character of the vineyard, the soil and of variety, within a harmonious set.

From the 1995 harvest, Riscal manually selects the grapes for this great wine with the installation of selection tables. Riscal is the first winery to introduce this system in Spain, marking a milestone in the production of quality red wines. de Chirel ferments at a controlled temperature of 26º, in small capacity Allier wooden vats.

This is followed by malolactic fermentation in fine-grained Allier oak barrels. Aging will last between 18 and 24 months, depending on the characteristics of each vintage. Once this is finished, the wine is bottled, passing a refining period of no less than 2 years before going on the market

Nice cherry red color, high and dark layer. Powerful aromatic intensity, where the toasted and spicy notes provided by the Allier oak stand out. Candied black fruits. The palate is fresh and creamy, soft and elegant tannins, with a long and balanced finish.
