100% Tempranillo from Rioja, but Rioja cannot appear on the label because of DO restrictions against wine exported in bulk. The moderately warm days and cool nights allow the grapes to ripen slowly on clay and sandy limestone soils, bringing bright aromas and concentrated flavors. Post-harvest, the grapes soak cold for 5 days at 45°F, to enhance aromas, color and flavor. Following fermentation, maceration is extended for 10 days to extract all beneficial color and tannins. The wine is aged in stainless steel to emphasize the pure, young flavor of the Tempranillo grape. 13.5% ALC.
