Intense ruby red resulting from the long maceration.

Deep berry nose, blackberries, and liquorice predominating the powerful structure.

There are fine hints of toasty oak with fine balsamic nuances.

The palate is full, generous and rich with hints of fine spices. The tannins are mature and the wine has developed an exceptional elegance from its time in barrel.

The finish is long, beautifully structured and classic Rioja Alta.

85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo.

This wine is produced from grapes harvested in vineyards over 20 years old in the area around Villalba and Haro in Rioja Alta, bush pruned, with low yields, and are picked by hand. Only the healthiest and ripest grapes are selected, and following destalking the grapes are cold macerated prior to a cool fermentation. Following a long maceration to achieve optimum colour and structure the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation refining it, yet leaving it with the necessary acidity to complete its maturation in French and American oak as well as bottle ageing prior to release.
