Production Area:
Our best vineyards in the area of Oyón and Laguardia are the starting point for our iconic wine. Selected plots for a classic Rioja blend: Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo.

Grape Varieties:


Tasting Notes:

Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo, the three classic Rioja grape varieties. Graciano provides a very lively colour and high acidity; Mazuelo flavour and abundant tannin, both together with Tempranillo are the perfect coupage for long ageing wines. True to Rioja, true to its origins.

Clean, bright. Ruby colour developing to maroon. On the nose is complex and elegant, wide fruity and spicy notes. On the mouth, elegant, with pleasant hints due to the barrel ageing. Long and silky finish.

Masterpieces take its time. Aged and refined longer. Only released when optimal.

Pairing Suggestions
It matches with any kind of meat and mushrooms rice. Some tasty or oily fish such as tuna or cod. Medium-aged cheese such as emmental or gruyere.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
Beautifully balanced, this shows all the positive attributes of mature Rioja. Though 30 years old, it is still very alive, with deep sweet fruit that wears tobacco and meat accents. Anise accents the ultrasmooth palate. Full of complex flavors, with a lingering finish.
