ELABORATION NOTES

Vino de Finca elaborated with Tinta Fina from one land (La Cruz) in the highest areas of Ribera del Duero.
The manual harvest gives way to long and intense macerations and to an ageing of 20 months in French oak barrels. Later ageing in wood for its perfect assembly. Here we have a very complex and intense wine in each and every phase of the tasting.

TASTING NOTES

It is bright and clean, in a red cherry colour. Red fruits evolve into soft toasted aromas and spices. On palate it is direct and lively, characterized by its long ageing in barrel and in bottle. A traditional Ribera.
