Grape Variety: Tempranillo 60%, Garnacha, Mazuelo and others
Tasting Notes: Richly coloured, deep, black-cherry hue with violet rims. Excellent combination of red berries like wild strawberries and raspberries with undertones of sweet liquorice. The palate is full-bodied and luscious with a velvety texture. Great, well-balanced acidity, together with silky tannins, trigger warm velvety mouth feel. Exceptionally elegant wine, full of freshness and great complexity.
