Origin: D.O.Ca Rioja, selected vineyards in the Rioja Alta area.
Controlled alcoholic fermentation at 24°C, contact with skins for 12 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in underground tanks, followed by a period of 18 months in semi-new, highest quality American oak casks. The wine is then aged in the bottle for 6 months before it leaves the winery.
COLOR: Violet red, bright and vivacious.
AROMA AND TASTE: Very powerful in the nose, tempting with a very clean background of American wood with coconut and notes of blackberry at the finish and touches of eucalyptus which make it deeper and more complex.
Very full-bodied and expressive in the mouth, integrated perfectly to combine the wood with the fruit compote. Long aftertaste with a predominance of excellent quality wood which embraces the ripe, sharp, explosive fruit.
Ideal with stews and casseroles, cold meats and all kinds of meat and roasts typical of the Mediterranean diet.
