Terroir & Vineyard Practices:
The Bodega’s vineyards are located in Haro (Rioja Alta), on the right bank of the River Ebro. The vines are at an altitude of 400-500 meters above sea level, and the main grape varieties that are raised are Tempranillo, Garnacha (Grenache), and Mazuelo (Carignan).
A lively rose made of Grenache. Fruity aromas on the nose. Fresh in the mouth with good acidity. Perfect to accompany pasta, rice dishes, vegetables, and even omelets.
The wine is made using traditional methods. Destemming of grapes. Short maceration to extract the minimum color with fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
