Varieties : Tempranillo 100% from Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa.
Vinification : Fermented in stainless steel vats for 20-25 days, with frequent remontages and extended maceration in order to achieve the right equilibrium among the fruity and the tannic sides of the extract.
Ageing : Aged for 14 months in American white oak (Quercus Alba) from the Northern Appalachian mountains in U.S.A.. These barriques have a 225 litres capacity, are medium toasted and previously dried for two years. Then the wine has been aged in bottle in our facilities for, at least, 6months before reaching the market.
Tasting Notes : Red ruby colour, harmonic, well balanced, with vanilla and oak hints. Soft and long in the mouth, shows a fantastic fruit concentration combining the subtle strawberry aromas so typical of the Rioja Tempranillo with the notorious vanilla bouquet of the American oak.
Serving Suggestions : Serving temperature: 16ºC-18ºC (61ºF-65ºF). Perfect with white meat, pasta, fish (depending on type and sauce), veal, chorizo and light cheeses.
