D.O.Ca Rioja (Spain)
Wine making process
The Harvest is made by hand at night in boxes of 26 lb. The harvest is carried out only by qualified winery staff. Bunches are selected in by each vine in the vineyard. The aging takes place in new and second year French oak barrels. We do two racking every year without removing the lees, to give the volume, unctuousness and silkiness that thiswine can boast about.
Coupage of two of our best vineyards: Los Molinos, Graciano variety with 17 acres of heavy calcareous clay soil. Planted at 1476 ft altitude and more than 20 years old. José León gives name to the vineyard of Tempranillo variety, a vineyard of 12 acres and 25 years old, with sandy soil and planted at 1247 ft altitude.
Intense red with garnet hues clean and bright.
Very expressive and aromatic. Mature fruit and spices like clove and white pepper stand out in this wine.
Tasty, savoury, with good structure. Well balanced, intense and round tannins.
