Winemaking Process

Made with tempranillo and graciano grapes from vineyards selected by age (30-50 years) and location. De-stemmed, crushed and transferred into barrels. Three-week fermentation at 26-28 °C. Eighty percent of this wine’s malolactic fermentation takes place in the tank and 20% in the barrel. The wine stays in the barrel for at least 1 year and in the bottle for at least 2.

Tasting Note

Bright cherry-red colour, bold but elegant slow-falling tears. In the nose, ripe fruits, licorice, vanilla and roasted notes. In the mouth, well-balanced, tasty, sweet fruity aftertaste.

Pairing

Rice with meat, Stews, Iberian ham, Roasted lamb, Roasted red meats, Mature cheese, Game animals.
