Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) The result of many years of experience, a renowned historic label. An icon of the Rioja Grandes Reservas of total quality and excellence. Exclusively produced with the best years of our best single vineyard, matured for two and a half years in American oak barrels and three years in bottle that give this wine a new depth, complexity and vivacity. Living legend of Rioja which has survived three centuries, destined to break records for its surprising vivacity of intense cherry colour which gives an amazing complexity. Its nose exhibits an aromatic intensity which seduces us with its red fruits, floral notes of truffles, incense and spicy touches. It caresses the palate with a satin texture. A Gran Reserva that shows strength, elegant bouquet, fruity intensity and impeccable balance.

    nose lept out of the glass on opening. prunes, plums and old wood. Complex on the palate with fully integrated tannins but still with intense black fruit on the mid palate. Deliciosa! especially with the Riojan speciality of lamb cooked in wood-burning oven.
