Produced from Tempranillo vines averaging 20 years old. The vines are grown in sandy clay-loam with high level of active limestone. The climate there is continental with Mediterranean influence; a cold winter is followed by hot summer days and warm summer nights. Grapes underwent a pre-fermentation cold soak to enhance color and fruit aroma in the finished wine. Fermentation occurred in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
(raised entirely in stainless steel tanks) Bright violet. Spice-accented dark fruits and fresh flowers on the incisive nose and in the mouth. Juicy and focused, showing good energy and no excess fat.
