2.800 hectares at 700 meters altitude locates in Cariñena Designation of Origin. Hilly terrain at base of the Ibérico Mountains. Soils composed of schist, chalk, loams and red clays. AGING 18 months aged in oak.
Ripe cherry colour with tinted tones. Intense, complex aroma of wild berries, delicate herbs and nuts wrapped in subtle balsamic and ethereal tones. Full harmony of the wood, toasts, vanilla and chocolate. After a gentle attack on the palate, it opens out with great taste, well structured, full in the mouth and unctuous, pleasant retronasal, leaving the sensation of a rounded wine with elegant harmony.
Appropriate to accompany red meats, roast lamb, duck, pheasant, white meats with strong sauces or stews.
The grapes from vines dating back more than 40 years are harvested by hand. After stemming and crushing, the grapes macerate for 2 or 3 days. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature with several pumpings every day. Once initial fermentation takes place, the free-run wine is de-vatted and passed into new French oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation takes place on lees. The wine is then decanted and continues to mature in barrels before being released onto the market.
