Grower's Note: Produced by Winery Arts with Tempranillo and Merlot varieties, collected in a selection of old vineyards of low production from the high slopes of the feet of Moncayo, in Aragon, to the warmest lands through which the Queiles River runs, already in the community of Navarra.The harvest begins in the lowlands around mid-September and develops well into October, which is when the fruits of the highest vineyards are collected. The grapes are harvested in boxes of 15 kilos, which are quickly transported to the winery, where the bunches that do not meet the optimal characteristics are removed. Fermentation and maceration in vats of 15,000 kilos, at a temperature of 28 degrees, for 3 or 4 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, from a selection of fine grain woods. A weekly batonage is performed, and the barrels are individually controlled. Aged for 16 months in new French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Black with violet edge and high robe. Intense aroma, in which fine woods (cocoa, toasted and smoked) dominate, which combine perfectly with ripe black fruits. Also appear the liquorice typical of the dominant tempranillo, as well as some liqueur notes. On the palate it is burly and fleshy, with an unusual power and structure that need to be tamed and that augur a great wine.
