Tasting notes

Colour: Intense, dark ruby colour. Nose: Alluring aromas of cinnamon, spices, lavender, and black cherry lead to a smooth-textured, nicely balanced wine. Palate: It is rich, concentrated and fleshy and shows elegance and complexity. On the palate, it shows silky tannins, with a succulent structure and excellent depth.

Producer

ARAEX RIOJA ALAVESA S.L.

Vinification and aging

85% Old Vine Tempranillo, 15% Merlot. The selection of grapes is done on the vineyard and later at the selection table. The stalks are then removed from the grapes without squeezing them. Grapes are maintained in controlled conditions, with long macerations at low temperatures in oak casks with the cap submerged. The must is naturally pumped over using gravity in order to achieve the best extraction of polyphenols. The pressing is carried out using pneumatic presses and a vertical press, and the malolactic fermentation then takes place in French oak casks. This wine has been bottled without filtration. The wine is aged for a total of 10 months in French oak.

Terroir

They are located at one of the highest points in Ribera del Duero, at 915 metres above sea levels. Vines grows on low-yielding calcareous soils that are rich in limestone, which increase fruit aromas and help to obtain balanced wines. The altitude acts as a buffer for the extreme heat that is typical of this continental area during the summer, a key moment in the ripening process of the grapes.
