Bottle size and vintage
The star wine of this bodega: a blend of Cabernet and Syrah grapes coming from small parcels densely planted at an altitude of 850 m.
This is a wine with high tannin content – it undergoes malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels and remains in them for 10 months. After a brief period of homogenization in tank, it is left to age again in new French oak barrels for a further 10 months and then 10 more in bottle.
NOTE: Decanting is recommended.
A dark cherry colour and very dense, the wine appears lively and bright. The nose is complex, revealing aromas of ripe fruit, with smoky notes of cocoa, tobacco and chocolate, imbued by the barrel. It is powerful, tannic, velvety-smooth and elegant on the palate.
Fermented in new oak barrels (10 months) and aged for 10 months in new French oak barrels. Subsequently resting in bottle for a further 12 months.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
