Tasting Notes
50% Tempranillo, 50% Graciano.
20 months in oak barrels, followed by at least 9 months bottle ageing.
Deep cherry red, clean and bright.
Complex and intense aromas, hints of eucalytus and minerals on a basis of toffee notes from the barrel ageing
Full and ample from the very attack, lively and with a good structure and notes of eucalytus. The soft aftertaste reveals toast flavours and a silky and warm memory lingers on
Legume, paté, Serrano and Iberico ham, game, semi-cured cheeses.

Features
Varietal
50% Tempranillo, 50% Graciano.

Winemaking
Both the harvest, and the fermentation of the three grape varieties were carried out separately, each of them at their ideal level of ripeness and at the specific fermentation conditions for each of the varieties. The bâttonage (pumping over) and pigeage (pumping down) techniques are used for a better extraction. Once racked from the tanks, the wine is due for a double racking and the malolactic fermentation in new barriques. This wine was aged in barrels for nine more months on its fine lees with periodic bâttonages at different times.

ABV
14,0% vol.

Ageing
20 months ageing in barrique, followed by a minimum of 9 months further bottle ageing.

Food pairing
Red grilled meat, roast lamb, big game, candied codfish, sheep cheeses and blue cheeses

Company details

When the path is wisdom, when the time has been gained.

Time becomes value. The origins of this wine cellar, prior even to the time when the Denominación de Origen guarantee of quality was created, have enabled it to preserve the word Rioja in its trademark. Rioja Vega is today one of the few wine cellars whose winemaking tradition dates back to the dawn of wine culture in this outstanding region. Those were the years when the French maestros, fleeing from the phylloxera that ravaged the vineyards in their country, chose these lands.They knew that proximity to the Ebro, its poor soils and its fine climate would produce an exceptional wine.

During those years, Felipe Ugalde, who later joined forces with the Muerza family, was able to take full advantage of the knowledge of these pioneers and later, pass it on to his heirs. More than 125 years have gone by since then and, by continuing with the same attitude, we have steadily gained wisdom, experience and knowledge by adapting to technological advances and carrying out research in order to be able to offer the wide range of wines we have today.

Only classics are truly modern.
