Colour: Cherry red with a purple rim which is a good indication of its ageing.
Aroma: Intense presence of dairy products, red fruits such as strawberry and raspberry, fruits of the forest such as blackberry. Also, aromas of flowers, menthol, minerals, cocoa and milk and coffee flavoured sweets can be found. Very perfumed.
Mouth: Smooth entrance into the mouth, warm, bold with sweet fruity notes. Hints of dairy products, cocoa, minerals and at the end the coffee flavoured sweets steal the show. Powerful in all senses, full-bodied, with a perfumed retro-nasal taste with good structure.
Pairing: To accompany appetizers, fish cooked in the oven and meat.
Varietal: 100% Tempranillo
The winery owns and manages 35 hectares of vineyard that are distributed amongst 90 different plots, which give complexity to the wines. The vines are over a century old and are located in various villages in the heart of Rioja Alavesa such as Elciego, Navaridas, Leza, Samaniego and of course Villabuena de Álava which is where the majority of the vineyard is located, no more than 2.5 Km from the winery. This means that there is very little time from the moment that the grapes are harvested until they arrive at the winery, which keeps the grapes at optimum condition. Using exclusively organic compost and the "vaso" bush vine system, they respect nature with the utmost attention.
