Limited Edition 5.844 bottles and 150 magnums
Nice and intense cherry-red colour. Dense tears clean, bright and extremely well presented.
Intense and complex nose power, predominance of candy red berries (redcurrant and blueberry) with hints of nutmeg, pure dark cacao and black pepper. All flavours are seductive and in harmony.
The bouquet is powerful, excellent personality from the “terroir” with elegant tannins. In the after taste the fine oak notes make reappearance. Long finish in the mouth.
The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come exclusively from vines older than 60 years from La Horra. Soils are clay and sandy with a small amount of limestone and at altitude between 800-840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tank of 7.500 L, with two to four days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place in barrels. The wine is aged for sixteen months in new 500 L French oak barrels. It is then aged an additional year in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2015 harvest was characterized by a very low yield production. The climatology conditions were good along the cycle, very healthy vintage and especially dry along September. The early harvesting September 21st –October3rd gave to the wines powerful fruit aromas, balance tannins, intense colour and a perfect acidity for aging into barrels.
The 2015 vintage was qualified as EXCELLENT.
We suggest decanting. This wine is ideally served at room temperature (16ºC) to accompany steak, venison and other hearty fare such as stews and roast, as hard cheeses as well.
Recomended consumption time from now until 2028.
