Stylish, bright ruby red and very intense in colour.
Highly aromatic on the nose with hints of red and black autumn fruit aromas along with some toasted and spicy notes of sweet bourbon character.
Full and meaty in the palate with great depth and a fine, long, velvety and complex finish.
Softened by 2 years in barrel, this lovely wine is aromatic and spicy delivering rich fruit on the savoury palate with an elegant and complex finish.
A selection of the best grapes from our Rioja Alta vineyards around the village of Villalba were hand harvested into small 30 kg boxes. Prior to starting the alcoholic fermentation, the whole bunches of grapes were cooled down and kept at a low temperature for some hours in order to better control the fermentation without using any additives and to achieve the optimum extraction. The fermentation took place in a combination of oak vats and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine was then aged in both American and French new oak casks for two years before being bottled followed by another two years in bottle prior to its release to the market.
