Winemakers Notes: Cherry red color with purple shines. In nose, it is fresh with intense aromas of red fruits, jam, cherries and plums. Aroma of toast with notes of liquorices and coffee. In mouth, the fruit perfectly blends with the oak, showing sweet tannins followed by a round, fresh and complex structure. Long and intense aftertaste.
Food matching: Red meat, lamb, carpaccio, tapas, semi-cured Manchego cheese.
Drinking temperature: 18 °C/ 62 °F
Winemaking: The Tempranillo comes from the plots whose slops face north, with a limestone composition and the Monastrell are grown at the lower end of the estate from soil poor in calcareous properties, ideal to concentrate aromatic nuances. .The Tempranillo is made into wine at low temperatures (15-18 °C) and the Monastrell at higher temperatures (25 °C). The maceration process takes approximately 18 days for Tempranillo and 20 days for Monastrell. The wine is transferred for 12 months to American oak barrels.
