Delicate, pure Rioja, tannic yet fresh, with notes of petals and spice plus a mouthful of firm, just-ripe blackberries. A blend of the past and present, this wine draws inspiration from Rioja before the french got involved! Before the heavy use use oak aging and the arrival of stainless steel, most rioja was a lighter style made using carbonic maceration (such as Beaujolais). This wine seeks to combine 50% carbonic maceration with 50% modern winemaking. The malolactic conversion takes place in barrel and where the wine ages for 16 months.
