The Parcela 12 is made up entirely of Graciano. Graciano, until recently was the colour and alcohol addition to the blend for Rioja in the north. Now, it is very much a stand-alone grape in it’s own right. The single parcela Graciano here is planted on granite soil which adds freshness and minerality to the wine. Matured for 8 months in French oak barrels, the wine has nuances of cocoa and balsamic with hints of sweet spice. This compliments the subtle floral notes and juicy fresh blackberry, plum and red cherry fruits. It is a powerful wine with a full body, smooth almost sweet tannins and an intense finish.
