This red wine is part of a collection of authentic and soulful bottlings that honors the hard work of the viticulturist Miguel Angel Mato, a native of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Through this collection of wines we hope to highlight the unique character and hard work he puts into his best plots. We hope the terroir expressed in the wines will transparently illuminate the soil, climate, and the hand of this man: a critical and fundamental element that make up their terroir.
Hand harvested. Fermentation and maceration during 2 weeks in oak barrels of 225 and 600L. Ageing for 12 months. 1400 bottles produced.
This red wine exhibits a bright purple color. Aromas of black fruit (blackberry, blueberry), white pepper and licorice. The palate is round, fruity and spicy (blackpepper), powerful and vibrant, but with lots of freshness, a clear Atlantic influence.
