- Wine Tasting Notes:
Colour: Pretty picota cherry colour, high robe, clean and bright. A fine and elegant tear.
Nose: A high intensity, expressive and aromatic nose. An almost perfect balance between the ripe red and brilliant fruity notes, and the aromas brought by its passage through barrels: elegant toasted nuances, fine spices and light animal touches.
Taste: Warm on the palate. Intense and deep, with a large personality. A perfect blend of ripe fruits balanced with woods. It has fine, well-structured velvety tannins, soft bitterness, and good acidity. Long, persistent and pleasant finish.

The vineyards, located at 630 meters (almost an altitude limit for growing grapes in this geographical area) are guarded by the Sierra de Cantabria, which exerts a protective barrier stopping the wind and cold from the north.
The vineyards owned by Torre de Ona fall into three main areas, according to the characteristics of the soil in each. All of them are located adjoining each other between the towns of Páganos and Laguardia, with a total area of almost 54 hectares.
In the first zone, consisting of a soft hillside erosion of 30 hectares of low organic matter content and poor quality land, include Tempranillo and Mazuelo varieties. In the second, almost 15 acres, include the silty fine-textured soils, high carbonate content and the predominant variety Tempranillo. Finally, the smallest extension of 9 hectares, is dedicated exclusively to developing its wine aging Finca San Martin, and is also planted with Tempranillo.
The winery is located in a small beautiful comprising the winery, the manor house and a little more secluded, the shrine of Santiago architectural ensemble.
