Próximo has been made in our cellar from grapes grown in our most traditional vineyard. The grapes are picked by hand and fermented at a controlled temperature. This wine expresses all the best characteristics of our area, thanks both to its wonderful fruity character, and its outstanding, polished tannins.

Plump and juicy with slightly candied red cherry fruit to go along with a touch of licorice on the plush finish.All silky, soft and easy to quaff. An impressive new wine from an impressive old winery.93% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 2% Manzuelo from Rioja.
