Single estate vineyard located in Altos de Corral a hill in the municipality of Navarrete (Rioja Alta), at an altitude of 600 m. We cultivate only Tempranillo on this small 10 hectare estate, the principal variety of the famous Rioja DO. Our soils are clayey and chalky on the northern edge with alluvial in the south, the surface has iron rich red soil and large rocks. The predominant climate influence is continental Mediterranean.
Inky dark core and a ruby hue. The nose already shows some maturity and complexity with ripe dark fruit, black truffle, cassis, fine oak, leather and tobacco leaf. Dense palate with good volume, grainy tannin, fine oak notes, coffee and mocha with layers of crushed dark berries, mild spices and a long lingering finish. Nicely done.
Serve between 15ºC and 18 ºC.
Ideal pairing with red meats.
