Deep cherry-red colour with beautiful bright red hues and long legs.
Excellent complexity starting with blackberries and blueberries, liquorice, balsamic, eucalyptus, minerals, leather aromas and continuing with spice as cedar and nutmeg, chocolate, coffee and toffee notes. All of them in perfect harmony.
Rich and voluptuous on the bouquet. As it names suggests, the nobility of this wine is experienced from the very first sip to the long, lingering, and velvety finish.
Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from a selection of the best cluster from Torrosillo vineyard older than 75 years with loamy clay with marls soil. Yield 1Kg/bush vine. Elevation 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 days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place. Egg white clarification. The wine is aged for a maximum of twenty-one months in new barrels (100-percent French oak). It is then aged an additional two years and a half in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2011 harvest was characterized by a medium-high yield production with extreme climatology conditions really cold winter and hottest spring and summer than average. That makes this vintage special and give to the wines an intense color, a sweet tannin, adequate pH and acidity for aging into barrels accompanied by a proper degree of alcohol.
The 2011 vintage was qualified as EXCELLENT.
This wine is ideally served at temperature 16ºC (61ºF) to accompany steak, venison and other hearty fare such as stews and roast, as hard cheeses as well. We suggest decanting.
