An exceptional terroir, where the authentic clone of Tinto Fino grafted from the old vinyards of the Pérez Pascuas brothers, reaches its maximum extent and singularity.
Aging: 20 months in French oak barrels, minimum of 12 months in bottle.
Taste: Good structure, dense, concentrated, with noble tannins of great quality, round and without any sharp points.

It’s toasted aromas and minerality give it a very original sensation, with a good intensity and elegance.

The palate is medium-bodied, somehow austere, serious and balanced, though is terribly tasty with good acidity and fine tannins."
