It’s the selection in the vineyard. Tempranillo grape comes from the oldest vineyard at 50 years old. Graciano comes from a poorer soil type and higher altitude. Hand harvested in 12 kg boxes. To pick only the best grapes, we hand select them on the sorting table. After fermentation, the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation both in barrels and in concret tanks. The wine is not filtered or stabilized. Aged in French and American oak for 18 months and fined in bottle for 6 months.
Appearance: Deep intensity cherry red colour.
Aroma: Intense and very complex, with outstanding ripe black fruit, dried plums and liquorice. Spicy notes, undergrowth and mineral nuances over an elegant oaky background.
Taste: Equilibrated and well-structured with silky tannins and delicious ripe fruit. Fresh and savoury, with a sound finish. Lingering fruity and spicy notes typical of good Graciano.
