A powerful, sophisticated Rioja, with heady fumes of tobacco, blackcurrant, chocolate and cedar, followed by a mouthful of blackcurrant and plums and a savoury, lightly smoky finish.
Food Matching: A marvellous companion to vegetable and smoked flavours, such as those of wild mushrooms and truffles. Combines nicely with subtly spiced dishes and unsmoked, medium-cured soft cheeses.
Vineyard: The 2011 gowth cycle, although with some drought areas, had very favourable weather wich allowed for optimun vegetative and sanitary conditions until the end of the cycle. The excellently healthy state of the bunches has been a key factor for the harvest favouring the perfect fermentation process and resulting in well structured wines with deep colour. Mirto is made from 70-year-old Tempranillo vines located in Villalba at 650 metres.
Vinification: Everything in this wine is an art, from the way the grape clusters are chosen at the bodega's sorting table, to the fermentation in small french oak vats. After fermentation at controlled temperatures to achieve the highest extraction of aromas and colour, the wine is placed in casks where malolactic fermentation takes place without rackings, just the periodic stirring of the less using the battonage technique. It spends 24 months in new French radoux and cadus oak casks with a medium and medium plus toast level. The wine is bottled without being subjected to any fining or filtering.

Viticulture The vineyard consist of 33 year old vines planted at a density of 5500 vines per hectare, on clay limestone and gravel soils. The East to West facing vineyards produce yields of up to 49 hl/ha. Grapes are machine harvested in September. Vinification Grapes are double manually sorted in both vineyard and winery, then subsequently destemmed but not crushed, going through a brief period of maceration on its skins before being pneumatically pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, and the wine goes through further maceration post fermentation.
