Description

Vineyards

Single estate vineyard located in Altos de Corral a hill in the municipality of Navarrete (Rioja Alta), at an altitude of 600m. We cultivate only Tempranillo on this small 10 hectare estate, the principal variety of the famous Rioja DO. Our soils are clayey and chalky on the northern edge with alluvial in the south, the surface has iron rich red soil and large rocks. The predominant climate influence is continental Mediterranean.

Tasting

Deep to medium intensity and bright ruby red colour. On the nose, aromas of ripe berries with vanilla notes from new barrels. The palate has good acidity and intense oak flavours, complex spices and ripe fruit. Full-bodied and lingering finish.

Serve between 15 and 18 ºC.
Ideal pairing with roasted and slow cooked meats.
