A very covered cherry-colored wine, almost opaque, with hardly any symptoms of evolution. On the nose it is intense, complex, with notes of ripe black fruits, balsamic and with a slightly mineral background. In the mouth it is very well structured, with a fresh sensation and a remarkable concentration of polished tannins that give, in the passage of the mouth, a warm and unctuous sensation, with a long finish where certain toasted notes are perceived from the aging in French oak barrels. Wine whose tannic skeleton and notable acidity augurs more than a good future aging in the bottle, very much in line with the riscales of the beginning of the 20th century.

CLIMATOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS HARVEST 2012

The 2012 campaign begins with a hot and dry autumn, a situation that lasted throughout the winter. At the beginning of bud break, the level of rainfall recorded was the lowest in the last 22 years. This lack of rainfall causes the overflow to begin around April 14. Flowering began on June 1, a month with exceptionally high temperatures, with hardly any rainfall. This caused a very rapid evolution of the vineyard.

The beginning of the veraison took place on July 25. The summer was extremely dry, which resulted in bunches and small grains, especially in the vineyards further south.

The harvest began on September 17 very selectively, due to the great difference in maturation between the plots. In the last section, the rains began, a factor that, together with a significant drop in temperatures, greatly helped the correct ripening of the grapes and especially the seeds and skins. The vegetative cycle was 210 days.
