A superbly complex single estate Rioja aged for 2 years in oak. It delivers great concentration of fruit, a dusting of fragrant spice and real elegance on the finish.
Red ruby, clean with medium colour intensity. A very fruity and intense nose with hints of strawberry, blueberry, vanilla and a balsamic finish. In the mouth it is round, velvety and mouth filling.
This wine is produced from selected plots of the Contino Estate. The grapes are de-stalked and fermented in 16000L stainless steel vats at a temperature of 28-30°C with a maceration time of 15-20 days prior to entering into the malolactic fermentation and then being transferred into a mixture of French and American oak barrels, where the wine will rest for two years.
Once the wine is bottled, it will rest a further year in bottle prior to being released.
