The grapes are vinified separately. Aged in 225 l. exclusively new French oak barrels for 19 months.
Marqués de Murrieta, founded in 1852, is a family business and one of the most famous Rioja producers. This project is a way of life, with more than 150 years of history has succeeded in adapting to modern times and maintaining at the same time the winery’s identity with a perfect balance between tradition and modernity which is transmitted and reflected in all the wines they produce. The winery includes almost 300 ha of vineyards in the southernmost part of la Rioja Alta. The extension of its Estate makes Marques de Murrieta one of the few Spanish wineries whose wine is 100% elaborated with their own grapes, thus enabling them to take extra care of the vineyards and to have total control over them. www.marquesdemurrieta.com
Tasting Notes: Complex and expressive nose displaying aromas of black berry fruits, minty nuances with sweet spices and mineral notes. Powerful yet smooth and elegant palate, wonderfully balanced with good integrated acidity. Concentrated black fruits with hints of spice and an excellent length. A contemporary wine with a mixture of classic and modern Rioja flavours.
Notes: It is recommended decanting at least 20 minutes before serving. Drinks beautifully now through 2033.
