To make this wine we have chosen two extreme parcels of DORioja with a common denominator: their altitude.
The easternmost vineyard is in Cripán, on the slopes of the majestic León Dormido, a beautiful mountain that dominates the Ebro valley. It is part of the Sierra Cantabria, a great natural barrier that protects Rioja Alavesa from the cold and northern clouds, confirming a special microclimate ideal for growing vines. The vineyard is south facing, with very poor soil and is characterized by the strong winds in the area. At the western end, the vineyard is located in Salinillas de Buradón, opposite the Riscos de Bilibio. The hermit San Felices, teacher of San Millán, lived in that special place in the 5th century, who, years later, founded the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, where the Emilianenses Glosses were written, which are the first writings in the Spanish language. and in Basque.
Nose: Great fruity expressiveness, marked at first by ripe black fruit, blackberries, blueberries – and floral tones – violet -. When opened, fresher and red fruits appear, such as ripe plums and raspberries. It stands out for its great aromatic compexity, enriched by minerals typical og the terroir (iron, graphite), and the influence of long aging, appearing undergrowth, spices, and sweet aromas such as caramel, vanilla or gingerbread.
Mouth: Fresh and balanced. Creamy and with volume. With the right structure to invite the next drink, and with a long aftertaste, fatihful to what we perceive on the nose. Fine and elegant.
