The wine

Macán and Macán Clásico are the two wines of the project embarked upon by Benjamin de Rothschild and Vega-Sicilia in Rioja territory, specifically in San Vicente. In fact, the name of these two wines comes from the word which is used colloquially to refer to the inhabitants of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Macán and Macán Clásico, two wines, one that is more powerful and complex, and the other more accessible, along the same lines as the Bordeaux tradition.

Macán Clásico is made from the grapes of Tempranillo vines aged between 35 and 90 years old and afterwards undergoes 15 months of ageing in oak (70% in new French oak barrels and 30% in barrels used for one wine). It is an elegant, very pleasant and naturally fine wine, with exuberant aromas of ripe red fruit.
