Parcela 12 is made of 100% Graciano. Graciano, until recently was the colour and alcohol addition to the blend for Rioja. Here, it is very much a stand-alone grape in it’s own right. This single parcel of Graciano is planted on granite soil which adds freshness and minerality to the wine. Matured for 8 months in French oak barrels, gives nuances of cocoa, balsamic and sweet spice. Subtle floral notes and juicy fresh blackberry, plum and red cherry fruits. Powerful and full bodied, yet smooth almost sweet tannins and an intense finish. Complex, elegant and fruit driven. Great wine for the money.
