A classic style of Rioja, with strawberry, blackberry and rhubarb fruit flavours taking on a vanilla and cocoa smoothness during twelve months in oak barrels.
The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks with temperature control, and the total maceration period was fourteen days. The wine spent twelve months in American oak barrels before bottling.
Grapes came from clay-soil vineyards in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa
Joaquin Martínez Bujanda founded this family business in Rioja in 1889, and was determined from the beginning to maintain quality by owning his own vineyards. This philosophy remains firmly in place and the company now owns nearly 1300 hectares in Rioja and La Mancha. The Promesa range offers a traditional style of barrel aged Rioja, and is the latest offering from the company.
