Designation of origin
D. O. Ca. Rioja,: Baños de Río Tobía, Rioja Alta
A unique 98-year-old vineyard planted by winemaker’s grandfather on slopes exposed in the form of an amphitheater, facing south 750 meters above sea level, with poor soils, shallow and with a marked clay-calcareous character. Organic viticulture. This is a unique vineyard with a production of 2,857 kg per hectare, with which we produce only 1,200 bottles.
After its destalking, the grapes are covered in barrels of 500 liters of French oak Tronçais in which it carries out the alcoholic fermentation and aging. The wine remains in the barrels with the Lees of fermentation for 11 months. This wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation.
Manual harvest in 17 kg boxes.
Atlantic influence, in one of the coolest areas of Rioja, with cold winters, temperate summers, and soft and long autumn. The large temperature variation between day and night causes a slow maturation, which is very suitable for polyphenol synthesis and aromatic development.
Its bluish color of wide intensity stands out. Its fruity nose resembles strawberries and raspberries. It has a very complex structured palate, with silky and elegant tannins. It has a balanced acidity and long persistence in the mouth.
