RIOJA

This Rioja unravels gently into a lingering experience of deep red berries, tobacco, and cedar juxtaposed with bright acidity and a velvety yet haunting finish.

WINE MAKING NOTES

An early October morning, after a week of climatic storms and hail, the grapes – damp and glimmering – were gently hand-picked and sent to be crushed and pumped into stainless steel fermenters to envelope optimal fruit aromas. After two weeks of maceration, the skins and juice were separated and then sent to undergo Malolactic fermentation. The wine then spent another three months in American oak barrels to reach quintessential aging before filtration and bottling.
