Intense cherry red with violet hues. The bouquet shows predominant aromas of forest fruits (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries) accompanied by spicy notes and liquorice, characteristic of the variety. Mineral notes of grain and certain hints of vanilla and leaf litter are also perceived to increase the aromatic complexity. The palate has good structure, typical in this variety. It also has good acidity that generates a great persistence. Structured but has a very pleasant and enveloping character, fruit of its maturation during its passage through barrel.

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.
