A wine that speaks of the Sonsierra in Rioja Alta and Alavesa, of the landscapes of Alto Najerilla, Albelda de Iregua and the Moncalvillo slopes, a balanced combination of Tempranillo with small additions of Garnacha and Maturana. Old bush vines and a traditional ageing process result in a wine that is fruity, lively and fresh, balanced and softly textured.
