Sonsierra’s position, south of the Cantabrian Mountains and north of the River Ebro, creates an Atlantic microclimate with a Mediterranean influence that is highly advantageous for vine-growing. These qualities make the terroir of Sonsierra one of the most suitable in all Rioja for the cultivation of high-quality vines. Having so many hectares of vineyards, with vines of different ages and planted at different altitudes, provides us with a wide range of qualities to choose from when producing wines with different flavour profiles.
An intense deep cherry red, there are clear overtones of liquorice, blackberry, blackcurrant, toffee, mocha and a hint of menthol. It is juicy, powerful and exuberant on the palate; a sensory experience that will live long in the memory. It has outstanding fruity notes (strawberry, currant and liquorice), very well combined with the aromas of ageing, especially roasted and toasted coffee. The palate is long, balanced, round, with a good entry and a long finish.
