Bright ripe aromas of black fruit with hints of liquorice and mocha. Cherry and plum fruit on the palate with acidity and balancing tannins. A very approachable, modern and satisfying Crianza.
Produced from 40-year-old vines grown on the slopes of the Sierra Yergas, around Quel, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. Predominantly Tempranillo is grown in the La Montesa vineyard, blended with Garnacha from Siete Caminos. Following a long maceration period, the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels (both used and new). This is followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.
This wine pairs particularly well with roast chicken and game.
