Deep cherry-red colour with beautiful bright red hues and long legs.
Excellent complexity starting with blackberries and raspberries, almonds, liquors, eucalyptus, minerals, leather aromas and continuing with spice as clove and nutmeg, cacao, coffee and hints of bakery notes. All of them in perfect harmony.
Dense, 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. It is then aged an additional two years and a half in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2012 harvest was characterized by a low yield production due to extreme climatology conditions as a very dry summer, with cold winter and nice spring. Harvesting October 3rd-10th.This vintage is very special and gives to the wines powerful fruit aromas, sweet tannins, intense colour and adequate acidity for aging into barrels accompanied by a proper degree of alcohol.
The 2012 vintage was qualified as VERY GOOD.
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.
