Wine Description

Made from a careful selection of grapes of the Tempranillo variety from our own Piedemonte plots in the area of Olite.

The vineyards growing the Tempranillo variety used to make this wine have an average yield of 4000 kg/ha and are located in non-irrigated areas. Once perfect balance is achieved between the grape components, the grape must obtained is rich in sugars, anthocyanins and tannins which, once the winemaking process has been completed, give rise to a complex wine.

The grapes are fermented and macerated in stainless steel vats. The fermentation is performed at a controlled temperature of between 28 to 30 ºC. It is then left to macerate for 15 – 20 days, depending on the phenolic characteristics and the condition of the Tempranillo grapes. 

Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation has been completed, the wine is matured in 225 litre oak barrels for 12 months. Following the barrel ageing, its subsequent bottle ageing gives it roundness which adds to the wine’s structure to create a really elegant, tasty and flavorful wine.

Tasting Notes

An attractive, intense red-currant with light purple hues.
Complex aromas from ageing, with outstanding ripe red fruit and subtle fruity, dairy nuances providing the wine with great aromatic elegance.
Mild tannins combine with fruit to provide a very wellbalanced
and persistent wine.
