Dark red. Intense fruity aroma reminiscent of black fruit confiture combined with balsamic notes. On the palate the wine is potent and balanced with great structure and a predominance of the fruity characters. Finishes clean and fresh. This wine displays the unique results of ancient vineyards from the cooler zone of the Ribera, grown in incomparable terroir: layers of white sand on limestone/marl concretions. These characteristics enable us to work with smaller and more concentrated grapes, a result of the vine fighting to find sufficient water to survive. Terroir, roots, drainage, thermal contrasts, maturation, aroma, concentration… the R factor.
