Rich red made from the extremely rare Morenillo grape which only exists in Terra Alta, although when it was made this was not actually an approved grape variety hence this wine has no DO label.

Tasting notes
It has a ripe raspberry and wild strawberry bouquet that is seductively sensual and well-defined. The palate has a succulent entry of sweet Morenillo, milk chocolate, and a touch of spice and crisp acidity that counterbalances the weight of fleshy fruit on the finish. This should age very well. Very fresh and long after taste. Limited production to 3.000 bottles.

    Unique wine. Bit oaky so would suit old school Rioja drinkers.
