grapes used for Laurona come from old vines over 50 years old. It is a blend in
which the Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Carignan. Aged for 12
months in new French Oak.
Laurona has a deep purplish red color typical to its actual youth. Its aroma is
penetrating, complex and intense. Initially, it recalls blackcurrant, plums,
blackberries and roasted dried fruits. Gradually, as the wine opens up,
complexity increases and penetrating spicy notes appear (vanilla, cinnamon ...)
and a pleasant floral background (violets). Its palate is opulent, velvety and
very persistent. The abundance and balance of tannins provide a luxurious
evolution over the next ten years.
