Wine Description

The very limited production of this wine begins with the careful selection of the best grapes from years in which the harvest is considered to be exceptional. After a lengthy maturation period in oak barrels, and a further prolonged ageing and refining process in the bottle, the resulting wine is a brilliant and intense ruby red with brick-red highlights, polished and elegant, and showing all the personality of a great Rioja wine.
