SOIL: Mainly clay and limestone. Some parcels in Rioja Alta with ferrous subsoil.

PREDOMINANT CLIMATE: Mild, Atlantic climate with marked seasons.

VINIFICATION: The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures starting off at 10ºC to reach 28ºC. Prolonged skin-contact maceration up to 20 days. Malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. Once this process has finalised, the wines are put into barrels for ageing with racking every six months.

TASTING NOTES: The flagship wine of its category, true to its style year after year. Black cherry colour with ruby red highlights of medium intensity. On the nose, balsamic notes, red berry fruits, toasted bread and cocoa. A touch of spice in the mouth with notes of vanilla and succulent fruit. Balanced complexity.

Serve at 16°C.
