General information

Made with the utmost care, only 1250 bottles have been produced, with Tempranillo grapes of more than 50 years from our Finca Iscorta vineyard. After a selection of the best bunches harvested by hand and transported to the winery in boxes of 15 kilos, the grapes have been for 5 days doing a cold pre-maceration to obtain a much more structured and complex wine.

Afterwards, it has undergone a controlled temperature fermentation for 15 days, and has remained for 2 months in 5 medium-toasted American oak barrels, where it has undergone malolactic fermentation. It has been in the barrel for 10 more months, making another 2 racking to obtain a completely clean and stable wine. This wine has not undergone any filtration process, clarified or stabilized, thus achieving the maximum expression of the Sonsierra terroir.

Tasting Notes Gran Chobeo

Of covered cherry color and purplish edge. Medium-high robe. The primary aromas are of fresh fruit with hints of scrub and pastry. On the palate it shows unctuous, meaty. Ripe, powerful and friendly tannins, very fruity. Marked acidity with a long, spicy aftertaste.
