CELLAR AGED RED WINE
100% TEMPRANILLO

Tasting Notes

Elaborated with grapes selected from our own vineyards to obtain a new concept of high quality red wine. Very intense, dark cherry in colour, clean and clear. Of great aromaticcomplexity, it includes exotic aromas (vanilla, chocolate and coconut) together with spicy and medium toast aromas. These aromas come together in perfect balance, without losing the fruit-bearing bottom of Tempranillo. On the palate, it is well constituted, being robust and vigorous, with a note of freshness and vivacity that complements the noble tannin of the casks and a notable fruit-bearing load to perfection. The aftertaste, conjures up the flavour of high roast coffee.
