Made with Tinto Fino from lands with an altitude of over 800 metres and clay-calcareous soils.

Natural stabilization before the bottling without aggressive filtrations. Bottled in March 2017.
Given it is clean and bright, with a cherry red colour and maroon nuances at the rim. Medium-high layer.
On nose it is intense and complex. Memories appear ripe red and black fruit and liquorice, along with spice and balsamic notes of oak ageing.
On palate it is tasty, oily. Perfect harmony between acidity and alcohol. Fresh and friendly aftertaste, thanks to the ripe and soft tannins, which are nice and provide a structure that gives length and life for current consumption and the next 3-4 years. Long end, ripe fruit aftertaste and spicy and smoky on retronasal.
