Wine Style: Red Still Wine

Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varietal: 100% Tempranillo

Sierra Cantabria Colección Privada portrays the maximum expressiveness of Tempranillo from our 50+ year old vineyards, Los Terreros and Jararte. We apply the same viticulture as our great grandparents, with more than a century of experience as grapegrowers in the search of the natural balance of the plant. The winemaking, as in the past, combines the carbonic maceration and the traditional vinification. Once completed the alcoholic fermentation, the ensemble is done and, afterwards, the malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak and American oak in which the wine ages 18 months. The final wine is seductive: elegant in the nose, silky in the mouth with a fluid and creamy finish. Its long memories are of an unctuous wine, with matured red fruit ensembled with lactic notes and spices and nuances of undergrowth.
