The grapes were handpicked from vineyards in the Rioja Alta sub-region, and then fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. Following full malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked to 225 liters American and French oak barrels where it was aged for 18 months and during which it acquired typical notes from both types of wood. Medium intensity ruby in colour with a pink hint at the rim. The nose shows good aromatic intensity with aromas of fresh wild berries and liquorice which are typical of wines made from Tempranillo grapes. These are well integrated with the sweet spice aromas from the barrel ageing process. The palate is soft and marked by silky tannins and a long, fruity and youthful finish. This wine pairs well with all types of meat, fish, stews and cheeses.
