After a traditional winemaking the wine performs the malolactic fermentation, which softens and adds complexity, in French oak barrels in which it remains 18 months. Later it is transferred to tinos of Frech oak where it rests 3 months before being bottled.
This wine will surprise and delight with its intense ruby-red color, seduce with its smells, a mix of blackberries, spices and tobacco. It expresses the soul of Rioja with a contemporary spin. Intense aromas from the varietals and its time in semi-new French-oak barrels. Elegant, full-bodied and good mouth-feel, full with a long finish.
