Wine description

The wines comes from barely 20-year-old vineyards, located in the centre of Rioja Alavesa, in El Villar de Álava, with a unique geographical situation, protected in the north by the Sierra Cantabria with some influence of the Ebro river microclimate. These are mostly limestone vineyards, which contribute to Tempranillo elegance and its definition with fruity intensity of a good sunshine, which characterizes these Rioja lands.

Made with 100% Tempranillo, harvested by hand, cluster by cluster. After selection, the grapes had their stems removed and the grapes were squeezed with prefermentative maceration at 16°C to obtain greater aromatic intensity with 12-day fermentation at a temperature between 28° and 30°C. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months, completing the process with maturation in the bottle for at least 4 more months.
