Wine type: Red

Ageing time: 36 months
The Viña Arnáiz vineyards have been cultivated since the 12th century. With an area of 12,000m2, production and bottling capacity of 18 million bottles a year, and capacity for 10,000 American oak Bordeaux bottles, this winery was awarded best winery in Spain for 2 years running.
This wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months, during which 2 decantings are performed to help oxygenate the wine. After this period, the wine remains in the bottle for another 18 months to complete the ageing period.
With notes of wild fruit and spices, along with a vanilla base, the nuanced palate provides a pitch of intensity, allowing a fruity finish accompanied by the maturity of sweet tannins integrated in the wine’s structure, providing elegance and a long finish.
This wine pairs perfectly with red meats and roasts. We recommend uncorking or decanting for a while prior to tasting, to fully appreciate its virtues.
We recommend serving between 16–18°C.
