This wine is made from 100% Tempranillo and has spent 12 months in barrel, followed by a further year’s ageing in bottle. It has an elegant bouquet, with ripe berry fruit, delicate oak character and soft tannins.
From a family owned winery with 125 years of history. The vineyards are located within the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Both areas offer a balanced, structured soil composition of sand, lime and clay. They are also slightly alkaline, with moderate water in the summer.
The old vine estate vineyards consist of 14 small parcels, that are cultivated separately to take advantage of the various microclimates and soil types. Natural organic matter is used to fertilize the vineyards, as stems, skins and pruning remains are put back into the earth. This combination of soils and natural farming infuses the fruit with distinctive characteristics that result in wines of exceptional quality.
