Wine Description

Very good climate during grape harvest, excellent grapes.

Vineyards located at 850 metres over the sea level in Sotillo de la Ribera.

The grapes are picked up by hand and put in small baskets by selecting them from the same vineyards.

This wine has stayed during 24 months in American and French oak barrels in an underground cellar from the 16th century and with a constant temperature of 12ºC. All these characteristics make possible that our wines get to an excellent oak-aged and also that they maintain this elegance and richness of sensations. 

The wine is bottled and is left to stand in the cellar at least a year before selling it.

Tasting Notes

Dark cherry-red colour.

In the nose it is very aromatic and elegant, with tones of ripe fruit, fine spices, minerals, truffle, coffee and tea.

In the mouth it is very well-structured, and balanced, with good body, but at the same time with great finesse, very velvety, really expressive and elegant. It is very long, and with an aftertaste of ripe fruit.
