Forward-thinking – marriage between tradition and modernity
Made under the supervision of the winemaking team of Bodegas Altanza, this semi Crianza offers an excellent alternative to those who prefer a much more traditional style of Rioja. The grapes come from vineyards in La Rioja Alta and the vinification is more traditional, using older oak barrels and allowing a little bit of natural oxidation.
Brambly red berry fruits tinged with marmalade and Moroccan leather. It builds gently to a lovely, dusky dark chocolate-coated finish that maintains freshness and tradition to the very finish.
