Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) This dry and orangey red coloured red showcases a complex nose releasing animal, balsamic, woody, empyreumatic, spicy, floral and fruity scents. You will be charmed with this full-bodied wine revealing a broad texture, fleshy tannins and a long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Color: A cherry-garnet color, deep, covered, clean and brilliant. Bouquet: Complex and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, dominated by scents typical of the tempranillo grape, but with balsamic tones and touches of oak. Taste: Full-bodied, rich, spicy, intense, flavorful, concentrated, very complex, and extraordinarily lively. Warm and powerful, with notes of pepper and cloves. Thanks to its excellent structure and great tannic strength, it has a very long and persistent finish.
