An intense and powerful Tempranillo from 40-year-old vines. Aged for 14 months in new French oak, this marries juicy wild berry flavours with a subtle spiciness.
The Tempranillo for the ‘Crianza’ comes from 40-year-old vines located in the towns of Quintana del Pidio, La Horra and Roa de Duero within the province of Burgos. These old vines produce low yields of very concentrated and intense fruit, packed full of flavour. The vineyards are on south-facing slopes at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level. Cool nights at this altitude counteract the heat of the days and allow the grapes to retain a balancing acidity.
This wine is intense cherry red in colour. On the nose, it has rich aromas of ripe red cherries and wild berries married with notes of black pepper, sweet spices and roasted coffee. Full bodied on the palate with ripe tannins and a well-integrated acidity, which carries the concentrated red fruit and spice flavours onto the lingering finish.
