Cuvée presentation

This cuvée is a blend of Tempranilla, Graciano and Mazuelo produced from 40-year-old vines cultivated on clay-limestone soils. After the harvest, the grapes macerate for around a fortnight before fermentation. The wine then ages for 2 years in American oak barrels and, after bottling, is ages some time in the bottle before being made available on the market. It’s an expressive, structured and elegant wine. On the nose, there are notes of aging, pepper, liquorice, and ripe fruits. On the palate, it is silky, rich, vibrant and particularly persistent.
