100% Tempranillo planted at 450 to 550 metres above sea level on clay-chalk soils. Grapes were destemmed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 28ºC, with pumping over several times daily. Maturation in a mixture of French (27%) and American (73%) oak barrels, 20% of which were new, for 16 months. The wine spent more than two years additional ageing in bottle before release. This is a modern, fruit forward and food-friendly Rioja with notes of red cherry, plum and allspice.
