This wine is produced from the oldest vines of the Senda del Lobo vineyard, aged 80 years and older. The grapes saw a 5 day pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature followed by a moderately warm fermentation with piegeage twice a day for 14 days. Malolactic took place in new French oak barrels. Aged for 17 months in 100% Taransaud and Daganeaux barrels.
(raised in new French oak barriques for 17 months):
Glass-staining ruby. Spicy, intensely perfumed aromas of blackberry, cherry liqueur and vanilla, with a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy, palate-staining dark berry, cherry-cola, spicecake and floral pastille flavors show superb focus and depth, with zesty acidity providing lift. Densely packed but the overall impression conveyed by this wine is one of elegance, not brawn. Fine-grained tannins come in late to give shape and grip to a strikingly long, incisive finish featuring suave floral pastille and dark berry preserve character. 2019 – 2025 Central Spain: Tempranillo and Beyond
