The wine has an intense ruby color. In the bouquet, we discover clear aromas of red blueberries, cedar, spices, licorice, vanilla and cocoa. In the mouth we can sense the flavors of ripe fruit, soft tannins, a long finish with dominant notes of dark chocolate. It tastes delicious when served with dark meat or cheese. Wine made of Tempranillo and Graciano grape varieties. It matures for 24 months in new and used American and French oak barrels and 24 months in bottles before leaving the winery.
Bodegas Ontañón is a multi-generation family winery located in Rioja Baja. Our 250 hectares (approximately 620 acres) of vineyards are located high in the Sierra Yerga mountains outside the town of Quel, which has been one of Rioja's most distinguished wine centers for three centuries. "Passion for the vine, passion for wine and passion for the arts" is the winery's motto, they believe that each of these elements contributes to the human experience and illustrates the essential connection of earth, people and culture.
The Rioja's soils make it ideal for growing top quality varieties that are balanced in structure, have high acidity and need only a moderate amount of water during the summer months. Rioja consists of several microclimates with extremely diverse soils, which is reflected in the unique characteristics of its wines. This, combined with the many different winemaking practices and grape varieties, enables winemakers to produce wines with very different personalities but which remain true to the region's history and characteristics.
