      Winemaking Process

The grapes come from all the vineyards in Baños de Ebro, where the Vinery is located. The vineyards are in an altitude between 420 and 480 meters above the sea level. Some of the vines are over 100 years old and other ones are just from the beggining of the century. This wine is created using the Rioja traditional “maceración carbónica” process (whole berry), which means that the whole grape suffers an intracellular fermentation, achiveing very aromatic and fruity wines.

    


Tasting Note

Cherry red colour, briliant and clean. Fresh and very tasty with good acidity. It provides lactic notes over a very pleasant mineral background.
