Brand Rio Madre
We started by making the Río Madre wine, a single variety using the Graciano. So, we chose those plots with the best ripening conditions. Once the grapes are in the tank, they undergo alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (20ºC to 25ºC) and the subsequent malolactic fermentation. This wine shows us the most jovial, tasty and fruity side of the variety, but with the contained power that characterises the Graciano.

Inky ruby. Blackberry, cherry pit, pungent flowers and a hint of olive on the fragrant nose. Gently chewy and fleshy in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that take a spicy turn through the midpalate. Smooth tannins come in late to add shape to the long, smoke- and spice-tinged finish.

Crushed red plum and kirsch flavors are backed by a tangy acidity in this broad, fresh red, with supple tannins encasing the graphite, anise and herb elements on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 7,500 cases made, 6,500 cases imported.
