A classic brick-garnet Rioja. The bottle ageing of this wine results in reducing aromas which are transformed into red fruit and liquorice hints when the wine comes into contact with the air. These aromas develop into the typical dairy, balsamic and spicy notes of rioja which has undergone a long ageing in new oak.
