Vega Sicilia Macan Clasico
Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia was born in 2004 as the result of a joint venture between Tempos Vega Sicilia and the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Both firms share the idea of making great wines in La Rioja, a unique, singular, inimitable winegrowing region. After five years of terroir evaluation and acquisition of 92 ha of vineyard, the project takes shape in 2009 with the first vintage of their two wines: Macán and Macán Clásico. To offer a modern and unique vision of Rioja, is their philosophy, following the Bordeaux model of a first and second wine.
Macán Clásico is deeply attached to its territory. Freshness, fruitiness and delicacy are its signs of identity. It is produced in stainless steel casks; part of malolactic fermentation in oak; new oak and single-use barrels, ageing for 12 to 14 months determined only by the characteristics of the vintage. It later sits in bottle for over 18 months.
