COLOUR: High intensity garnet red with barely any development on the edge. A whole wine with a good hue.
NOSE: Pleasant tinges of wild herbs stand out, as well as a certain remembrance of laurel and Atlantic hues blended with boxwood and balsamic notes, without even swirling the glass. When swirling it, scents arise which resemble creamy oak, scrubland rosemary, fallen leaves, accompanied by elegant spices such as clove, cinnamon, sandalwood and nutmeg.
MOUTH: Elegant first sensation with lively tannins, full of personality and kind. Fruity on the palate, the taste buds are caressed with nuances of minerals and ripe fruit. As the nose already revealed, hints of exotic spices are also found on the palate. A long, pleasant and racy aftertaste round up this complex yet creamy wine.
Cold meat, antipasti, all types of meat, dishes of small game hunting and wild fowl.
ORIGIN OF THE VINEYARDS: Rioja Alavesa: Laguardia, at 550 metres above sea level. Rioja Alta: Fuenmayor, a 405 metres above sea level. The soil is predominantly clay, calcareous and very stony.

BARRELING: The barreling takes place in 28,000 liter stainless steel tanks.
FERMENTATION: Fermentation takes place with autochthonous yeasts at a controlled temperature of 30ºC; the grape juice is pumped over the grape skin layer on a daily basis and the grape skin is broken.
PRESSING: Soft and slow pressing in a pneumatic press.
MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION: The malolactic fermentation takes place after the alcoholic fermentation in new French oak barrels.
