Winemaker's Notes:

Red violet color, with purple hues. The aroma of the wine leaves subtle memories of ripen fruits (blackcurrants, raspberries). On the palate it is fresh, structured and very fruity. 100% Tempranillo. Ideally suited with BBQ beef and poultry as well as vegetables or salad.

The label is temperature sensitive and the equestrian & horse image will show a blue outline when the optimum drinking temp is reached.

It is an art that requires the skill of a gymnast, the strength of a sportsman and the balance, coordination and gentleness of an acrobatic dancer. The teamwork to obtain a perfect integration of the horse andthe vaulter is also key. With a history extending back to Roman sports, it flourished in the Renaissance when it was considered an exercisefor knights and noblemen, a symbol of status.
