Grape varieties: Tempranillo, Garnacha
About: Composed of 90% Tempranillo grape and 10% Garnacha grape harvested by hand from our farms: Paraje 3 Marqueses (1998), Las Canteras (1986) and Santa Ana (1998), the first in the area of the three Marqueses from Logroño and the last two in Murillo de Rio Leza making the southern limit of the DOCa. Rioja as they are at the entrance of the Sierra del Camero Viejo. Limestone and clay-sandy soils with a loamy texture and medium depth. Northeast orientation.
Grapes harvested by hand and collected in 200 kg pallets. The grape grains are separated from the bunch and placed in a warehouse where they will remain for 48 hours at a temperature between 5 and 10 degrees. We then ferment (transform sugar into alcohol) at a low temperature. Our way of mixing skin, seeds and liquid is through a novel disintegration system in which the "hat" is completely submerged in the liquid. In this way we extract more color and more aromas from the grape variety. The second fermentation or malolactic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks. To achieve this aging, we keep the wine for a year in 225-liter French oak barrels and then go to the bottle until it achieves that roundness and balance that characterizes it without losing the fruity and fresh character of Paco García.
Tasting Notes: What are you going to find? A round, balanced, fresh and tasty wine. Cherry red in colour, it is clean and bright. In this wine we find a ripe fruit (peach, cherries), mint and chocolate. Once it is in the mouth it is delicious, pleasant, intense, harmonious and romantic.
