Sonsierra | Reserva 2012

This wine is made from grapes harvested from the lower slopes of the Cantabrian Mountain Range. It is fermented in stainless still tanks and macerated with the skins for 20 days to obtain its beautiful color.

VARIETIES | 100% Tempranillo

AGING | 12 months in American (70%) and French (30%) oak Bordeaux-type barrels. A minimum of 24 months’ bottle aging.

TASTING NOTES | It has an appealing deep red color with ruby and tawny rims. To the nose it is smooth with wood and spicy hints. In the mouth, it is round and pleasant, with toasty hints at the finish that give it consistency and lingering mineral notes.
