1100% Tempranillo. Aged 14 months in American oak barrels, then bottle for a minimus of 6 months. Created in 1987 by Eduardo Gómez and María Isabel Bernardo in Rioja Alavesa. They both studied abroad and brought back to La Rioja new ways of making wine aside of the crianza, reserva and gran reserva standards. Their Belezos wines, one of the first Riojas to get organic certification, is a good example of their ideas.
