Made with 100% Tinto Fino (the local name for Tempranillo grape) from low-yielding vines that are more than 20 years old, from different areas, soils, and altitudes, which adds complexity and balance as well as expression, depth, and freshness.
Hand-harvested, follows a careful sorting of the grapes, and is elaborated by gravity. Aged for 15 months in American and French oak barrels.
Good nose of licorice, crème de cassis, mineral, and spice complemented by concentrated black fruit aromas. Creamy-textured, spiced black fruit in confiture. Good balance between fruit and oak with nicely integrated mature tannins.
Bodegas Vizcarra owns 35 ha of Tinto Fino vines, 1 ha of Merlot, as well as some other plots scattered throughout Mambrilla de Castrejón and Roa de Duero that are planted with various other foreign varieties. In 1991, Juan Carlos Vizcarra, the actual proprietor of the winery, following his father’s footsteps, took over the winery, making first young wines and later aged wines. In 2007, they started operating from their new facilities, where the whole process of elaboration and ageing is done by gravity, this way avoiding the use of electrical pumps in order to achieve a major concentration of aromas and much softer tannins. As a result, the wines stand out for their elegance and personality.
