Winemaking Process

The grapes are selected from 10 to 20 year-old vines from the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa regions. Sloped plots of calcareous-clay soils with good drainage and sun exposure. The destemmed grapes are ligthly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28 º celsius. Maceration in contact with the grape skins for 15 days, pumping the juice over the cap of skins daily for amximum colour and aromatic extraction. 

Aged for 14 months in hybrid barrels (American oak staves and French oak heads) followed by 9 months of rounding in the bottle to prior to release.


Tasting Note

Intense red cherry colour. Aromas of red fruits, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry framed by fine nuances of vanilla and toffee. Silky and structured on the palate, it has a long lasting and satisfying finish.


Pairing

A perfect wine by the glass. Very versatile and apt to combine with all types of food:  cold starters, pasta, pizza, poultry, grilled red meat …
