This wine is intense garnet in colour. Aromas of juicy strawberries, cherries and blackberries are married with notes of vanilla and spices from oak ageing and subtle earthy hints. The palate is exceptionally well-structured and fleshy, knit together with velvety tannins. The concentrated flavours are balanced by a vibrant acidity and endure on the long finish
96% Tempranillo , 4% Mazuelo
