Bright red cherry color with matt hint. Outstanding aroma of ripe fruit together with roast and vanilla backgrounds, very fine and delicate. The presence of sweet tannins makes this wine round and velvety showing the energy and of Tempranillo with its unique frankness. All these details linked to a perfect selection of American and French oak casks make a very attractive and long-lasting wine.

Food Matching: Filling dishes, stews, red and hunting meat. Mature cheese. Very good with roast lamb shoulder or even better barbecued.
