Pleasant, velvety and balsamic ripe red fruit feeling along with elegant ripe tannins, that are rounded and perfectly integrated with a flavourful finish and a nice long aftertaste.

    Valdelacierva grano a grano is the latest added wine to the winery. A special product, featuring wines that are born from the terroir, with microvinifications in large barrels differentiated by estate andageing process in French oak.In this way, only small-scale productions, which the land produces with each vintage, come onto the market. This is how Valdelacierva Grano a Grano (or grain by grain) is born; in essence it emerges from the “La Botija” estate with its own unique characteristics -a harvesting process that begins out in the estate, destemming grape by grape and grain by grain in the winery- and eventually grows into a wine.

    With a very attractive dense cherry red colour, it has an intense nose of red and black fruits with milky undertones and a subtle spicy touch, characteristic of a good mature tempranillo with cocoa and toffees. A very complex wine on account of its ageing in large French oak barrels, powerful and velvety on the palate with an agreeable and inviting persistence.

A very complex wine on account of its ageing in large French oak barrels, powerful and velvety on the palate with an agreeable and inviting persistence.

    It bears the simplest of labels featuring only the brand without any other distracting elements. In fact, it is the sense of touch which is the main protagonist here, playing an excellent role that in a special way portrays the sense of touching the land and all the primary elements involved in the process of creating this special vintage.
