Classical elaboration consisting of destemming and posterior crushing. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature around 25ºC. 15 days of maceration.
Breeding for 12 months in new French oak cask.
Red pillory of magnificent intensity.
We anticipate a perfumed nose, in which the memories of abundant red fruit predominate accompanied by soft mineral notes, of wood and also of spices.
In the mouth it is powerful, fresh, wide and full of nuances: blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, cocoa, coffee with milk, smoked … Its length, softness and elegance leaves in us a pleasant memory.
Optimal consumption until 2020. Ideal with grilled red meats.
Founded in 1881 by Félix Azpilicueta, the winery has always stood out for its vocation to promote training and love for wine. It has also been able to adapt to the new times without losing sight of its origins. Proof of this are the latest wine series launched in tribute to its founder.
Azpilicueta winemaker, Elena Adell, who worked with the architect Ignacio Quemada in the design of the Campo Viejo winery, where the Azpilicueta are made, always seeks to have all her wines have their own personality: fine and soft wines that make you want another Drink during a meal or a conversation between friends.
