Made from Tempranillo and Red Garnacha from vineyards in the 3 sub-areas in Rioja with different soil types: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, northward-facing in the foothills of the Sierra de la Demanda. The wine is aged in medium-roasted white American (Ohio) and French oak barrels for 14 months, with decanting every 4 months to facilitate the natural filtering process. It then stays for 6 months in the bottle for refinement.
Cherry red in colour with a ruby rim; red fruit overtones present in the nose, it is smoky with hints of liquorice. In the mouth, it is clean, tasty, fresh and balanced. It has a lengthy finish, both fruity and spicy.
89 Points - Wine Enthusiast Leathery black plum and currant aromas include a note of vanilla on a mostly harmonious and familiar Rioja nose. This crianza feels juicy and solid. Plum, wild berry and mild oak flavors finish steady and direct, with smooth tannins.
