A full-bodied, complex and elegant Rioja from a parcel of old vines that surround an 800 year old olive tree on the estate.

The wine is full bodied, complex and elegant with well-integrated oak and fine grained tannins. Rich ripe black fruits and a long finish.

Grapes were hand harvested and carefully selected from our plot Vina del Olivo (surrounding a 1000 year old olive tree), that were put into 20 kilo baskets to transport them to the winery to be fermented in our 100HL French oak winemaking vats at 28-30°C for 10 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in new French oak barrels, and for the barrel ageing we put the wine in French, American and Hungarian oak casks successively for 17 months. Finally, the wine was aged in bottle for over a year before release.
