Alcoholic fermentation: De-stemmed, crushed grapes. Long macerations of 28, 32 days in stainless steel tanks with the cap submerged, to extract all the primary fruit aromas of the varietal, as well as the maximum colour. Gentle pumping over to maximise the extraction of polyphenolic compounds. Malolactic fermentation: takes place in French oak barrels, adding hints of spices and a smoother, more appealing character.
Aged for 18 months in 225 litre new French oak barrels. New, lightly toasted, hand-cleft barrels are used, from different French cooperages. The wine remains in bottle for at least 28 months.
Deep red with bluish highlights on the rim, intensely coloured
Wine made with tempranillo grapes from a sole vineyard in the Rioja Alavesa, in the quest for character and personality. This wine offers us a great intensity of fruit where notes of blackberry, redcurrant, blueberries and hints of blue fruits such as sloe berries stand out. We find notes from the oak ageing such as pipe tobacco, cigar box, forest floor and a roasted finish that create an elegant and subtle whole.
Enveloping and full-bodied, powerful but at the same time welcoming and delicate with a sensation of sweetness due to its magnificent maturity with very fine, mature and elegant tannins, a good level of well-balanced acidity brings a touch of liveliness and freshness. It is without doubt a wine with a marked character with a silky and very long finish.
