This is an elegant expression of the Vijariego Negro variety shown through a soft vinification and élevage in large foudres that respect the purity of the wine and do not impact the aromatics and flavors.

It has an earthy note of wet clay, and it's pungent and spicy, showing hints of cloves and balsamic. It's quite complex and develops nicely in the glass—notes of liquorice and ink emerge after a good hour and a half in the glass.

There are always some grainy tannins and the wine is more powerful than it may seem at first. It's approachable but should also be long lived.
