Highly aromatic with black fruit and ripe sloe notes. Very mineral that, together with the vanilla, spice and tobacco notes from the barrel, give a great character to this wine. The Tempranillo variety is very emphasized and well incorporated with the barrel.
"Cantos comes from stony land with less clay than the land from other places of this unique estate, and tend to be lighter. It’s a very elegant wine, subtle and refined. It is a monovarietal wine made with Tempranillo that has aged in a mix of 70% French oak barrel and 30% in American oak barrel. Detailed and nuance with a silky tannins and the sweetness of red fruits. 93 points."
