From a 6-acre site planted in 1945, (69 years old in 2014), this Tempranillo is arguably the greatest in the world, planted on almost pure white limestone, which imbues it with a delicacy and savory power not found in many Riojas. And because this isn’t dried out in barrel like a Gran Reserva, it’s fresh and blooming with life. Suckling swooned for its “Amazing aromas of crushed berry with bark, dark tea and blueberry undertones. Violets and lilac too. Full body, yet agile and vivid with dense and beautiful tannins. Licorice and light tar finish. Endless.
