Der Wein besitzt ein glänzendes Rubinrot im Glas. Ihn umgibt ein fruchtig-würziger Duft von roten und schwarzen Beerenfrüchten, der Anklänge von Vanille, Leder und Kokos enthält.
Stylish, bright ruby red and very intense in colour. Highly aromatic on the nose with hints of red and black autumn fruit aromas along with some toasted and spicy notes of sweet Bourbon character.
A selection of the best grapes from our Rioja Alta vineyards around the village of Villalba were hand harvested into small 30 kg cases. Prior to commencing the alcoholic fermentation, the whole bunches of grapes were cooled down and kept at a low temperature for some hours in order to better control the fermentation without using any additives and to achieve the optimum extraction. The fermentation took place in a combination of oak vats and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine is then aged in both American and French new oak casks for two years before being bottled followed by another two years in bottle prior to its release to the market.
Information of the vintage: After a rainy and mild winter and an unusually dry and warm spring, climatic conditions during summertime could be considered as normal for the season. In general, the evolution of the vineyards was satisfactory, even showing a certain advance over previous years. Green harvest was necessary during summer in order to limit the yields. In our vineyards, the harvest took place from early October until early November. In average, the pulp-skin ratio and the total production were lower than usual and the sanitary state and ripenning of the grapes were excellent and homogeneous.
