Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Tasting NotesVery intense garnet-red colour with some hints of terracotta on the edge. Complex and smooth on the nose with fruit aromas that are well balanced with the fine French oak notes. Intense, elegant aromas of black fruits, wet earth and sweet spice. It maintains a lively freshness and vitality with aromas of fine reduction. The flavours are even better: structured fruit, elegant and persistent. Fleshy, powerful and balanced in the mouth, it is pleasant and impressive. Long finish. This wine is perfect with more demanding, complex meals, red meat, stews, roasted meats, and sharp cheese.
