Red tile in colour. The bouquet bring lively notes on the edging that denote its freshness despite its long aging both in barrel and bottle. A true mosaic of spices, which makes it enormously complex. It also highlights a more sweet and primary background, with notes of ripe fruit compote and an interesting touch of liquorice. A palate of enormous persistence, it shows velvety tannins, result of its slow evolution in the long period of aging. The good acidity that preserves, balances all its journey through the mouth. Enveloping in character, it is fired with a very elegant and harmonic finish.

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.
