Rothschild Vega Sicilia Macan Rioja 2014
This is not traditional Rioja, Macán and Macán Clásico are not blends of various terroirs but aim to express one particular terroir – that of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in Rioja Alta.
Macán is Bodegas Benjamín de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia´s flagship. It is elegance and depth. Its freshness and fruitiness is the result of a meticulous grape selection from our best "pagos" (vineyards) in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Its fineness and complexity are expressed in its making in oak casks with a 20% malolactic fermentation in barrel. Its silky tannin is a genuine result of very old vines, variety Tempranillo, along with cautious ageing of 14 months using only extra-fine grain french wood. It`s a reflexive, intense wine relating to modern times. Complicated year in terms of weather conditions, where vineyard work is reflected in the quality of the wine. A great deal of selection to attain its maximum potential, bringing out a tremendously elegant, subtle, harmonious and fresh wine.
