Year: 2016
Sugar: 1 - 2gr/L
GRAPES: 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)
AGED: Aged for two years in brand new French oak barrels before bottling with minimal filtration.
This is a serious wine. It is made at the Dominio de Cair, the Ribera del Duero estate belonging to the Rioja firm Luis Cañas. Grapes come from 80 year old vines planted at high altitude on low fertility sandy calcareous soils which give very low yields of spectacular grapes. Fermentation takes place in oak vats and production in general is done with the utmost care and attention to detail giving a very limited edition wine of sensational quality and caracter.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo).
BOUQUET
Intense and nuanced with powerful black fruits and a hint of licorice. It is beautifully balanced and integrated with all sorts of subtleties such as spicy notes of vanilla and cedar from the oak and a certain fresh minerality.
PALATE
Powerful and structured yet elegant and complex with lots of black fruit, subtle spices, real grip and terrific length. This is magnificent.
VITICULTURE

Cultivated in the districts of La Aguilera, Quintana del Pidio, and Moradillo de Roa, this is where their passion to obtain the best grapes, on each vine, becomes a reality.

They control approximately 110 hectares of vines between estate-owned and outsourced vineyards, at an altitude of between 830 and 950 metres above sea level, in chalky-clay, sandy and stony soils.

Checked and closely monitored throughout the growing cycle so that only the best clusters are left on the vine. Vines tended with painstaking care from a commitment to rational viticulture and a respect for the environment.

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.
