Tasting Notes

20 years ago, D. Carlos Falcó started developing a Tempranillo monovarietal aged for 6 months in new American oak barrels, something revolutionary at that moment.

To celebrate his 20th anniversary in Rioja, he decided to produce his last creation: 'Selección Especial', a limited edition produced with Tempranillo grapes, coming from selected vineyards from Rioja Alta, in particular from Nájera, Arenzana, Manjarrés and Uruñuela, and aged for 18 months in American oak barrels.

Wine

A well-rounded wine, very balanced with an intense ruby red color. A delicious Tempranillo with a predominance of vanilla notes that will guarantee further ageing. 

Production Method

Selection of the best grapes from the vineyard, destemmed at 100% and then fermented with a floating pomace hat at a maximum temperature of 28º. Once this is finished, the wine stays in contact with the skins to obtain the structure and tannins necessary for its subsequent refinement during 18 months in American oak barrels.
