90% Tempranillo from a selection of the best grapes coming from 30 year-old, low yielding bush vines in the Rioja Alta and 10% Mazuelo from our Viña Lanciano vineyard.
Destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30º C. The wine was then macerated for 3 weeks, over-pumping the must daily to favor higher extraction of colour and aromas.
Aged 24 months in American oak and French oak barrels, followed by a minimum of 36 months in the bottle.
Garnet with ruby hues. Aromas of ripe red fruits combined with spicy notes from the aging in oak (Vanilla, cinnamon, fennel, liquorice root) and tertiary aromas (Leather, cigar box…) from its prolonged bottle ageing. Full bodied and round, its mouthfeel is elegant and very well balanced.
A wine for a special occasion. Recommended to pair with roasted meats, lamb, hearty stews and cured cheeses.
Serve at 17º – 19º C (62º – 66 º F).
