A blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet, and merlot grapes from D.O. Ribera Del Duero, Spain in vineyards over 50 years old. These vineyards sit in elevations of up to 1,000 metres and made up of highly diverse soil types but mostly clay and sand. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels, 50% of them are new and 50% have been used only once before.
Produced only in excellent vintages, hand-harvested in small crates, only whole grapes are selected to extract the maximum fruit aromas. It has a deep and intense cherry-red colour. Very Aromatic and explosive nose, modern and elegant. Appreciate the nice ripe black fruits (plum, blackberry, and blueberry) with intense notes of vanilla, cocoa, liquorice, toast, and other nice spicy and mineral hints (flint, pencil, mine). Powerful tannins, full-body wine, dense, delicate, wide and velvety. Nice acidity which makes it very fresh, with a long and elegant finish that invites you to have another glass.
