The Ferratus is the flagship of the winery, a 100% Tempranillo wine aged in wood for at least 14 months. With a beautiful and intense colour, it is a glyceric wine which delights the nose with red and black fruit aromas and violet candy. The wood is subtle yet adds notes of tobacco and chocolate, making it a wine of great complexity. A pleasant sensation of balance and integration hits the mouth thanks to its velvety tannins, while its character and capacity also shine. Ferratus delivers a long wrap-around finish leaving us with the memory of a modern, elegant and self-confident wine.
