Grape Variety:


85% Tempranillo – 5% Garnacha – 5% Mazuelo – 5% Graciano



36 months in French and American oak new barrels.

Wine Making:

In the process of making this wine, we use grapes from the property´s vineyards planted in the 80s in the best soils of Aldeanueva de Ebro and each variety is elaborated separately.

The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled tanks. Afterwards it is devatted and approximately one week later we begin with the rackings.

Once the wine is finished, we do the coupages and it is transferred into the barrels where malolactic fermentation is carried out.

During the 36 months that the wine is in barrel, it will be racked every 6 months wich makes a total of six rackings to make our Reserva wine.

Before being put on the market , it will have to remain a minimum of 1 year in bottle to get the perfect refinement.

Tasting Note:

High depth cherry red colour, intense and with hardly any sign of evolution.

On the nose very expressive, with liquorice, cinnamon and black pepper notes. Where the long ageing in barrel is barely noticeable thanks to its complexity and ripe fruit aromas concentration.

Fresh on the palate, with very pleasant and refined tannins. Well structured, easy to drink with a long lingering aftertaste with subtle balsamic remembrances.

Food Pairing:

This wine is a good pairing to ham, semi cured cheese, not very spicy stews, legumes, poultry, red meat, roast meat or game casseroles.

Best Served at:

Between 16º and 18º
