Cherry-red in colour with viiolet-hued rim. On the nose - red fruits and liquorice, with a pleasant herbaceous quality. On the palate it is well-structured and fresh, with a long and very fruity finish.
Fermentation at a controlled temperature of 25C to preserve and extract the fruity aromas to the maximum, plus gentle maceration on the skins for around 7 days. Maturation in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of the fruit.
The name Sonsierra means 'under the mountains' - in this case the Cantabrian range in Rioja Alta. Here a combination of tradition, modernity and radical commitment to quality has placed Bodega Sonsierra at the vanguard of Rioja's most innovative wineries. The cornerstone of Sonsierra's philosophy consists of achieving the perfect balance between fruit and oak, giving the wines a modern style and unique personality within the framework of an easily recognizable Rioja identity. A unique microclimate, deep Miocene clay-limestone soils and a thousand-year-old history of winemaking contribute to wines with beautifully balanced acidity and excellent concentration of aromas and flavours.
