It is an old wine cellar, whose background dates from 1860, that decided to expand and modify its aspect.

It is an old wine cellar, whose background dates from 1860, that decided to expand and modify its aspect. Pérez Foncea family, owners of the plants, have been producing wine for many years, but they moved in the home area. Ready to give a great step forward, they built a wine cellar which is located at Logroño, a modern building with a controlled temperature stainless steel fermentation mill, an equipment of coldness, a new bottling train and new oaken casks. Everything was sufficient for their idea of not exceeding a million bottles. Read less

This bottle was decanted three hours before tasting. It opened with sweet plum sauce, cherry tobacco, allspice and clove with sweet peas and musk on the nose. This wine excites the palate with roasted cherries, old cedar, sweet sun tea and fresh earth on a gorgeous velvety frame. The finish is long, long , long with tea leaf and spicy fresh cherry.

A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano, and 10% Mazuelo from 25 ha of estate owned vineyards. A pale to medium toned brick color. Powerful aged aromas of tobacco, leather, mulling spice, dried meat, prunes, dried cherries and cooked fig. This is a dry, light bodied wine, with lively acidity, weak soft tannins, and a medium long finish. Very flavorful on the palate with stewed tomatoes, prunes, bay leaf, dusty earth, and dried oregano. An excellent wine considering the age, it still has a lot of fruit left and I believe a couple more years of life. This wine is well balanced and definitely drinking well right now. Grilled lamb makes me say oh boy. 4/5

Amazing wine - for something that is over 40 years old to taste so fresh and spot on. Perfect berry notes with sublime leather and minimal wood effects. Not like a typical old school Rioja with tons of oak aging, this tastes incredible. Worth it if you can find it.

The 1968 is my favorite red wine; we just had a bottle for my birthday and my guests enjoyed it as well. I'm very happy to find again (after 30 years)! Cheers.
