Alc. 14º
Year: 2017
Sugar: 1 - 2gr/L

AGED: Aged during 12 months in oak casks. 60% in French oak and 40% in American oak. Age of casks; 3 years.
A wine which stands out for its exceptional price and quality. The grapes used for this wine come from vineyards of 30 to 35 years of age, aged for 12 months in both French and American oak casks. We call it a modern Classic Rioja where the oak is a fine supplement to the high quality grapes, well integrated without dominating the fruit. A small amount of the Garnacha grape is added for freshness and fruitiness.

GRAPE VARIETIES
95% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha. Average age of the vines: 30 years.
BOUQUET
On the nose the fruit is very present. Attractive aromas of red fruits such as strawberry and cherries, where the touch of the fine oak it has aged on, has left light hints of vanilla and cedar wood.
PALATE
On the palate the wine is amazingly tasty and well structured. The fruit is the dominating part and the oak is there without taking over, as a nice supplement to the wine. The wine is medium-bodied and very tasty, with a nice structure but at the same time velvety with balsamic touches and ripe tannins. Once you have swallowed the wine you will again be reminded of strawberry and cherry with just the right amount of acidity that will make you ask for another sip.
VITICULTURE

Respect for the environment and the hard work of each and every link in the human chain involved in the process are vital for turning the boon of rational viticulture into success.

Rational viticulture is a farming system which optimises the use of natural resources and mechanisms to the maximum, guaranteeing the future of sustainable agriculture.

Biological, chemical and other methods are carefully selected and balanced in order to ensure the protection of the environment.

The use of herbicides, synthetic fertilisers and aggressive products or practices is strictly forbidden in order to protect the surroundings and obtain vines with a strengthened immune system so that they can defend themselves on their own.

For this work, they have a specific field department made up of an agricultural engineer, a technical agronomist and oenologist as well as 8 workers who are true vineyard masters. The aim is to have healthy land, (surely the best legacy they can leave for future generations) and as a result, healthier fruit and wines.

WINEMAKING

Care, perfection and loving attention to what they do can be seen from the very way they transport the clusters of grapes, in small plastic crates in the case of the oldest vineyards and in small trailers for younger vines.

As well as selecting on the vine itself, ALL Luis Cañas wines undergo a double selection process.

First they pass through a sorting table where the clusters are selected by hand and subsequently, each individual berry is checked on a Mistral table, so that only those in perfect condition continue in the process.

The most stringent winemaking process. They select the French- and American-oak casks, from among the best cooperages in the world. The cask stock is renewed continuously, so the average age is three years. A real luxury.
