Golden yellow with bright and greenish reflections. The bouquet shows great intensity and complexity. The sweet aromas stand out, with a background of ripe fruit and frosty fruits. They also highlight notes of hay, cream and vanilla, which are complemented by aniseed nuances. The palate is surprising, its great unctuosity, marked on fire with a vibrant acidity and a sweet finish very pleasant background. The palate is accompanied by an excellent salinity, with a finish delimited by the texture of the wood.

Bodega Classica is in the heart of the Rioja Alta, near the historic town of San Vincente de la Sonsierra, one of the places with the longest tradition of wine. The region offers the best conditions for growing the Tempranillo grape. The vineyards are protected in the north of the Toloño mountains, the climate in the south is positively influenced by the river Ebro. The winery is located on a hill. The majority of the space is, however, under the ground. This enables gentle wine production using gravity and the natural temperature regulation. Consequently, this ensures high energy efficiency. The wines are produced according to traditional winemaking techniques, but using the latest technology. About 5,000 barrels of primarily French and some American oak are owned by the Bodega. The wine collection Hacienda López de Haro is classic, elegant and expressive here but very accessible. Thus, for both wine connoisseurs, as well as the average drinker a perfect pleasure.
