The Wine
Very rich, deep, dark berry bouquet of great complexity. Mouth filling sensation of very rich, concentrated dark berry fruit with chocolate and mint, showing great fresness and very elegant tannnis that add to the sense of lightness and silky smoothness, giving way to a very long, satisfying finish. Amazing balance between the power of the fruit, the firmness and roundness of the tannish and the smoothness of the incredibly lingering finish.

1987, Mario Rotllant arrived in the Rioja region determined to fulfil his dream of setting up his own winery. Rotllant had experience in the world of wine and knew some of the most important contacts in the sector. His ambition was clear: to make a unique Rioja, one that was different from all the others. He transmitted his enthusiasm to a team who would become the pillars of the project: Agustín Santolaya, who would take the reins, Isidro Palacios, who would look after the vineyards, and Carlos Diez, who would be responsible for oenology and the winery. They chose Haro, the birthplace of Rioja, to begin their work. They settled in the city’s Estación district and built a winery without equal, taking in both the tradition of the deeply hewn incisions in the native rock and the most advanced technology. Unfortunately, the choice of land proved more
difficult. Their idea was to use the production of a single vineyard in the style of the French “chateaux”, but there were no estates to be found which met all the conditions they sought. Finding the right vineyards took long months of analysis, soil study and examination of localities. Finally, 17 different areas of vineyard were selected, all bearing common features: old vines established in poor soils with a proven history of vine growing, each individually capable of producing magnificent wines.
