Details

Intense cherry-red with a hint of claret.

Elegant aromas, pleasant, clean, intense, complex in the nose. Intense raspberry stands out. Blue flowers like violets, blackberries and fallen leaves. Produces smooth balsamic tones. Smoked and high roasted with great finesse.

Great personality on first taste – volume, unctuosity and an infinite length. Good acidity and produces freshness. Red fruits appear in the centre of the mouth with mentholated and smoked tones.

In the field, the grapes are chosen and harvested into 17kg boxes. Once they arrive at the winery the first selection of bunches is done and then a second of loose grapes. The fermentation and its maceration post-fermentation are undertaken in conical tanks at a controlled temperature. Ageing in the barrel is 12-15 months. 90% French Oak, 10% American Oak.

100% Tempranillo

Deserves to be paired with a really big, juicy steak!

  • Full-Bodied and Rich Red Wines

    Full-Bodied and Rich Red Wines

    Full-bodied wines typically have more tannin, higher alcohol, and dark fruit flavours such as blackcurrant. Since these wines have so much pigment, they are higher in anthocyanin which has shown positive benefits to cardiovascular health. As far as flavour, these wines are the biggest on the spectrum and thus, pair with equally bold flavoured food.

    INGREDIENTS

    tbsp olive oil 3 medium or 2 large aubergines, sliced
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    1.5 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp dried oregano
    500g minced lamb
    2 tbsp tomato purée, mixed with 150ml water
    150ml red wine
    Small bunch of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
    For the bechamel:
    500ml milk
    60g butter
    60g plain flour
    50g kefalotyri or pecorino cheese, grated
    2 eggs, beaten
    Nutmeg, to grate


    Preparation method

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Cut the aubergines lengthways into 0.5cm slices, and put them on to oiled baking sheets. Brush with olive oil and season. Bake for about 25 minutes until soft, golden and floppy.

    2.Meanwhile, put 2 tbsp olive oil into a large frying pan over a medium high heat and cook the onion until soft. Add the garlic, cinnamon and oregano and cook for a further couple of minutes, then stir in the lamb. Turn up the heat slightly, and brown the lamb well, cooking until the mixture is quite dry. Stir in the tomato and wine, bring to a simmer, then turn the heat down low and cook for 30–40 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated. Season and stir in the parsley.

    3. Meanwhile, make the bechamel. Bring the milk to just below boiling point, and melt the butter in another saucepan. Stir the flour into the butter and cook for a couple of minutes, then gradually whisk in the hot milk. Cook until you have a thick sauce, then stir in the cheese until melted. Take off the heat and allow to cool slightly, then beat in the eggs, salt to taste and slightly more nutmeg than you might think wise (it's a strong flavour, but you need a heft of it in this dish I think - half a teaspoon at least).

    4.Arrange a third of the aubergines in the base of an oven dish, and top with half the meat. Repeat these layers, then finish off with a layer of aubergine, and top with the sauce. Bake for about 45 minutes until well browned, and then leave to cool for half an hour before serving.
