Description

In 1970 Luis Cañas changed two hundred years of tradition and became the first winemaker in Rioja Alavesa to bottle his young wine rather than sell it as bulk.

This bold move, and his continued pioneering spirit, has cemented the winery’s enviable reputation as one of the most progressive in the region.

This is a classically styled Rioja that is made from a selection of old vines with an average of 50 years old. After a strict grape selection in the cellars, the berries undergo fermentation and maceration in stainless steel tank, before ageing in French and American oak for 24 months. It is then bottled and aged for a further 36 months prior to release.

Ruby red with earthy colour notes. Elegant and complex on the nose with a good concentration of black fruit, thyme and rosemary with secondary aromas of leather and tobacco leaves. It is polished and rounded, making it extremely attractive to drink now. Fleshy with both elegance and power. It has touches of black fruit jam and liquorice, with a long, delicious and persistent finish.
