50% Tempranillo, 50% Graciano.

20 months in oak barrels, followed by at least 9 months bottle ageing.

Deep cherry red, clean and bright.

Complex and intense aromas, hints of eucalytus and minerals on a basis of toffee notes from the barrel ageing

Full and ample from the very attack, lively and with a good structure and notes of eucalytus. The soft aftertaste reveals toast flavours and a silky and warm memory lingers on

Legume, paté, Serrano and Iberico ham, game, semi-cured cheeses.

50% Tempranillo, 50% Graciano.

Winemaking

Both the harvest, and the fermentation of the three grape varieties were carried out separately, each of them at their ideal level of ripeness and at the specific fermentation conditions for each of the varieties. The bâttonage (pumping over) and pigeage (pumping down) techniques are used for a better extraction. Once racked from the tanks, the wine is due for a double racking and the malolactic fermentation in new barriques. This wine was aged in barrels for nine more months on its fine lees with periodic bâttonages at different times.

ABV

14,0% vol.

Ageing

20 months ageing in barrique, followed by a minimum of 9 months further bottle ageing.

Food pairing

Red grilled meat, roast lamb, big game, candied codfish, sheep cheeses and blue cheeses
