Ageing: 36 months in large oak barrels and 12 months in bottle. Bottling date: April 2018. Total production: 17,304 bottles and 1,348 magnums. This is bottle number 4326. A shade deeper and a little more developed than the Muncagota Riserva. Deep nose of strawberry and iron with a cool edge in spite of its concentration. Minerally raspberry fruit with a linear core of acidity and more than a hint of iron. Firm layer of coating tannins while the linear, perfumed raspberry fruit is elegant as well as concentrated. Gorgeous vibrant finish. 14% Drink 2022-2034
