Medium-high cherry red robe, with orange tinted tones on the edge of the glass, clear and brilliant. Intense and complex to the nose. Wild berry aromas predominate, blended with hints of coconut, cinnamon, tobacco and leather. Full-bodied and well structured to the palate, with silky and enveloping tannins. Long after-taste acquired from its lengthy time in bottle, where its elegant bouquet gains in intensity. This Via Ardanza continues to evolve without losing its traditional qualities.
The weather during the vine's growth cycle was ideal for ensuring the highest possible quality of grape, with no pests or fungal diseases in the vineyard and correct flowering, setting and turning. There was hardly any rainfall worthy of note in September, so the ripening process went unhindered. Harvesting started in the first week of October on the Via Ardanza and Los Llanos estates (both in Fuenmayor). The grapes were picked in an excellent condition, with good sugar content and excellent colour parameters for high quality wine.
