A fantastic example of a premium Rioja from one of the oldest family owned vineyards in Spain.

This wine is made from 85% Tempranillo/Aragonez/Tinta Roriz, 10% Graciano and 5% Carignan/Cari�ena. It is aged in French and American Oak barrels, giving a beautiful oak complexity. Intense and complex on the nose, the wine has notes of spices and leather with hints of red fruits. The palate is classic rioja, fabulous bright berry fruit and a balance of more complex woody and spicy notes. The tannin is now integrated, elegant and silky with a remarkably balanced after taste of fruit and acidity.
