- Production process
Alcoholic fermentation: the grapes are destalked but not crushed, and after a long maceration they are fermented in stainless steel tanks with automatic control of temperature, pumping-over and micro-oxygenation. The malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels, adding layers of spices and a smoother, more appealing character.
Aged for 13 months in 225 litre French oak hand-cleft barrels with at least 10 months in bottle. Lightly toasted barrels from the very best French cooperages are used.
Deeply coloured, brilliant red with purple highlights.
Very clean and complex, in wich the fruit of the noble Tempranillo grape stands out with clearly defined red cherry, wild forest fruits and cranberry. In the background we detect hints of elegant oak with notes of cedar, toasted almond and a mixture of spices such as green peppercorns and cinnamon that add to the complexity of the whole, with a mineral finish.
As is habitual, this wine shows the considerable structure by wich it can be characterised, formed of mature, elegant and sweet tannins that fit with the balanced acidity that brings freshness and liveliness to the whole. A long, flavourful finish gives this wine a distinguished and noble personality.
