TASTING SHEET

By tilting the glass approximately 60 degrees and on a white background, in the heart of the glass, we can observe picota cherry red tones mixed with hints of bright purple, giving the wine a spectacular liveliness. We find a meniscus with violet tones and not very developed.

This shows us the wine is well made since the tones have evolved in the barrel while still respecting the liveliness of the wine.

On the nose, holding the glass still we can sense aromas of black fruit, such as blackberries or cranberries and new and clean wood. If we move the glass, the aforementioned aromas mix together to offer us a fusion of black fruit, nuts and reminiscent hints of vanilla. On the palate it is a very full wine, with a long finish where we get a tannin which is tamed, flavourful and a little aggressive on the palate, which makes the touch sensations pleasant and silky. With flavours of black fruit and coconuts with hints of vanilla.

This wine is heavily influenced by the typical terroir of La Rioja Alta, giving very balanced general characteristics which are capable of satisfying the most discerning palates.
