Pure Tempranillo from a single, high-altitude vineyard planted with 85 year-old vines. Saturated purple colour with soaring wild plum and blueberry aromas, supported by complex nuances of tobacco, chocolate and Mediterranean herbs. The taste is deep and enveloping - beautifully pure, lively fruit, with lots and lots of personality. To appreciate this now, decant at least two hours before you plan to drink it. Alternatively, lock it away for 5-10 years. Matured for 24 months in 100% French oak barrels before bottling, which gives it great complexity and subtle structure.

Winemaking

Everything in this wine is an art, from the way the grape clusters are chosen at the bodega's sorting table, to the fermentation in small french oak vats. After fermentation at controlled temperatures to achieve the highest extraction of aromas and colour, the wine is placed in casks where malolactic fermentation takes place without rackings, just the periodic stirring of the less using the battonage technique. It spends 24 months in new French radoux and cadus oak casks with a medium and medium plus toast level. The wine is bottled without being subjected to any fining or filtering.
