Intense ruby-red colour with great depth. On the nose, aromas of vanilla and cinnamon mingle with notes of mature fruit. On the palate the wine is smooth and round, with good body and well-integrated, sweet tannins.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and maceration on the skins for about 13 days. The wine is aged for 12 months in American oak Bordeaux-type barrels, followed by a minimum of 3 months in bottle prior to release.
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.
