Wine made from red grape varietals.
Varietals: Local varietals grown on volcanic islands in the high mountains.
Elaboration: The process of elaboration of this wine begins with the selection of the best bunches collected manually. We separate the grape from the cluster and let it macerate for 20 days in a steel tank, with a controlled temperature and a reducing environment, avoiding the oxidation of the grape. It is the weight of the grape and gravity that extract the "must flower" that we will ferment on the lees for 6 months in lightly toasted French oak barrels.

Vineyard altitude: Between 1,000 and 1,500 meters above sea level.
Pairing: Red Meats, Grills, Grill, Stew, Gofio, Big Game, Lamb, Foie.
Tasting notes: It has a beautiful cherry color, medium-high layer with a violet rim. On the nose it has a very complex medium-high intensity, with aromas reminiscent of blueberries, blackberries, prunes, cocoa, roasted beans, black pepper, liquorice, with mineral notes. In the mouth it has a dry entry with a wide journey. It is fresh, with high tannins and a bitter finish. In retronasal it reminds of minerality, cocoa and toasted notes. It is a balanced, meaty and chewy wine.
