Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its red brick color offers a nice open nose of black fruit and licorice with fine woody notes. On the palate, this distinctive wine is balanced, frank, fine, fleshy, ample and spicy with a finish on tight tannins.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

The Rioja region is comprised of three sub-regions. Located higher in altitude, the rioja Alta benefits from an oceanic climate. On the region’s east side, the Rioja Baja is hotter and drier with a mediterranean climate. In between, the Rioja Alavesa receives the influence of both climates.
