Intense purple colour with violet glints. Highly aromatic with black fruit and ripe sloe notes. Very mineral, together with the vanilla, spice and tobacco notes from the barrel, give a great character to this wine. The Tempranillo variety is very emphasized and well incorporated with the barrel.
On the palate it is oily, rich and intense with a sweetness of fruit right across the mouth, showing great finesse. The typical 'Valpiedra' freshness is predominant. A long, cool and mineral finish, with a touch of fine oak.
