Super fresh Rioja, tempranillo garnacha and graciano from far west Alavesa. All inox and concrete for a bright and easy-drinking style. A little blue fruit from partial carbonic fermentation.

Trop de chien mouillé au nez, même après une heure de carafe. Beaucoup de fruit, de la vivacité, des bretts.

Spicy alcoholic texture and hints of cherries. Overall a light wine, yet pleasant.
