Winemaking

Bunches are carefully sorted, destemmed, and transferred to stainless steel tanks for maceration. The temperature controlled fermentation begins spontaneously. When the fermentation is finished, the wine is run off by gravity. Malolactic fermentation in tank.

Ageing

15 months in American and French oak barrels in underground cellars followed by 5 months in stainless steel for natural fining and settling. Once bottled, it is bottle aged underground for at least 8 months.

Comments

Traditionally styled Rioja Crianza. Characteristic red fruit aromatics of vineyards planted in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, with delicate notes of coffee and spice from oak ageing.
