An intense wine, made from old vines aged around 40 years old. They are planted on dry, stony ground at an altitude of 800 metres, in a plot of land called “Las Gruesas.”
An intense dark cherry colour, on the nose it displays candied aromas of black fruit, cinnamon and vanilla. It is very pleasant, powerful and well-structured on the palate.
Aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.
