The grapes were hand picked from selected vineyards and, following destalking,
they were fermented at controlled temperatures between 28oC and 30oC.
Following a full malolactic fermentation to balance the acidity, and to round and
soften the wine, it was matured for eighteen months in a mixture of French and
American oak barrels, with rackings every six months. After bottling, the wine was
cellared twenty four months before being released.

The 2012 harvest has been poor in the DOCa Rioja due to the drought that has
characterized this vintage . The yield in the vineyard has been less especially in
rainfed areas and has affected all varieties , especially the white but this lack of
rain has meant that the grapes reach the winery in excellent health status getting
very Mediterranean wines , aromatic and fruity . In CVNE we started on
September 20 and ended on October 23 , making a slow and selective harvest .

Intense ruby red, bright and deep in colour. Rich, deep aromas of bramble, red
autumn fruit with a hint of balsamic and warm spices from fine oak. The palate is
fine, complex and long, with balanced tannins and an excellent bright finish.
