Grape Varieties: 70% Tempranillo, 30% Graciaco

A limited bottle release, each numbered and signed by our winemaker Mercedes Garcia, that showcase the authentic and everlasting Rioja. Crafted with two ancestral varietals: Tempranillo and Graciano.


Color: Cherry red with a very deeply coloured blue rim, showing great density and amplitude upon swirling.

Aroma & Palate: Very fruity on the nose, with notes of liquorice and redcurrant underscored by subtle hints of cinnamon and juniper. Rounded and full-bodied in the mouth, with a glycerine texture. Powerful attack, with noticeably seductive tannins and a freshness that sustains it through the palate, making it long and enjoyable. The black fruit and fragrant notes of oak return again on the finish.


Ideal with red meats and game. Its robust nature proves ideal when paring with cured meats.

D.O.Ca. Rioja. The estate that provides the Tempranillo grapes for this unique wine is located on one of the highest hills in Fuenmayor. More than 40 years old, it is dry-farmed and bush-trained, with predominately sandy, pebbly soils. Light levels are high due to the altitude, helped by fresh breezes in summer. The Graciano comes from the Rioja Baja, on this occasion we select a high-altitude estate with steep slopes in the Pradejón area for the lower alcohol levels it gives

Winemaking & Aging

Fermented in small stainless steel tanks, with constant pumping-over. Malolactic fermentation in underground cement tanks. The wines were aged separately in barrels, of which 100 were 60% French oak and 40% mixed, for 25 months. After a final racking, the final blend was made and they spent another five months together as a "harmonious blend" in the barrel. This was followed by at least two years in the bottle before release.
