Red Wine by Ostatu from Rioja, Spain. The Saenz de Samaniego family has been in thearea for many generations. The winery dates backover two hundred and fifty years. The vineyards, which are protected by the Sierra de Cantabriarange, are composed of chalk and clay and the average age of the vines is 50 years.

The poor soils and the unique location at the foot of this mountain range together create a special microclimate that is very favorable to the Tempranillo grape.
