Highly-selected, top quality Mencia grapes from vineyards of slate-schist, decomposed volcanic soils ideal for water retention especially when there is drought. Both Souson and Caino are added for their colour and fragrance thanks to their strong pigmentation. Vines are tightly-controlled through green pruning and thinning of bunches in order to obtain low yields and the best concentration of organoleptic sensations, colour, aromas and taste.
High intensity, deep garnet colour with a strong violet hue. Pronounced, clean, youthful, fresh aromas of red fruits, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, cocoa, coffee and floral notes of jasmine. Rounded and silky body with refreshing acidity and integrated sweet tannins (micro-oxygenation) packed with red berry and ripe cherry fruits, chunky and rich, mineral flavours, with a slightly dark bitter chocolate but fruity long aftertaste. Very limited production in 2017 - 5000 bottles
