This wine ranks among the elite of the Rioja region. Fernando Chivite, from the Bordeaux school of thought and who I admire very much, knows how to enhance the refinement and substance of all his wines. Elegant, intense and complex. Aromas that incite poetry, a walk through the forest to connect with nature, stumbling across wild berries and flowers, then a visit to the winery with that characteristic bouquet and the nobility of the fine wood. One notices at once the acidity, bitterness, tannins, and quality… all wrapped in a velvet cloak.

95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano. Aged for 18 months in new Allier oak barrels. Bottled in June 2006. 26.159 bottles of 75 cl, 3.007 magnums and 112 double magnums.
