Its classic Rioja bouquet stands out big, complex and round, with elegant finish. A Gran Reserva 890 with a magnificent present and a promising future.

95% Tempranillo and 2% Mazuelo from estate-owned vineyards in Briñas, Labastida and 3% Villalba Graciano from the Montecillo vineyard.
The selected clusters were picked manually into boxes that were transported to the winery in refrigerated vehicles. After gentle destemming and crushing, the wines underwent an unhurried fermentation. Subsequently, the best batches were put in barrels, where they were aged for 6 years with 10 traditional rackings. During this time, a new selection was carried out and only 199 barrels were in the final blend. The wines has not been filtered in order to preserve all the aromatic components.
