A blend of various varieties (Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano) grown in the villages of Baños de Ebro (Rioja Alavesa), San Asensio and Medrano (Rioja Alta). The old bush vines are low yielding, and well exposed sites with a mix of chalky and ferrous clay soils. The blend makes an elegant, medium bodied vibrant wine.
