Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Cuvée Especial

Sierra Cantabria Cuvée is a red wine from the D.O la Rioja produced by the winery Sierra Cantabria. This is a single varietal made from Tempranillo, the most common grape of the region.

The grapes used for Sierra Cantabria Cuvée originate from the winery's own vineyards, located in Laguardia and Labastida.

The average age of the vines are around 30 years old and grow in calcareous soils, the vines are treated exclusively with organic fertilisers.

The harvest is performed by hand. The grapes undergo a double selection process: in the vineyard and the winery.

For production, Sierra Cantabria Cuvée is achieved through a traditional methodology. The grapes are first cold macerated for 48 hours and after a post-fermentative phase with its husks for 20 days.

During the fermentation process, 2 daily pump overs are performed. Forthe maceration phase, the pump overs are reduced till they reach one every 2 days.

Sierra Cantabria Cuvée is aged for 14 months in American (60%) and French (40%), subsequently for a further 4 months in new toasted French barrels.

To enjoy the wine to its fullest, we recommend decanting the wine half an hour before serving.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
