Angel de Larrainzar is more than a wine. It is the soul of our family and a tribute to the beautiful estate that has belonged to our family for the last 150 years.
It carries on the tradition of quality and elegance of our wines. You will recognize our vineyard while tasting this wine, as it emphasizes the freshness and boldness of the fruit, aged for a short time in oak. It is also our tribute to Angel de Larrainzar, our great-grandfather, who planted the first vineyard on this property back in 1891. This wine lives up to our tradition and adds modern notes in perfect harmony.
It shows an attractive cherry red color with purple trim, which reveals its youth. It shows an intense aroma of red fruit compote, blackberries and raspberries, giving way to pleasant notes of clean oak, with hints of cocoa and toffee. It enters the mouth with intensity. Fresh attack, robust, powerful, sun-kissed palate with appealing drive and aromatic purity. It leaves a nice and sweet aftertaste, inviting you to drink a second glass.
