Ico Vinedos

Vineyards

Some 5 small vineyards with a unique terroir, located at an altitude of 450-750 metres. Goblet-trained in accordance with a traditional, balanced viticulture that naturally limits the production per hectare. These rain-fed vineyards, with their thin clay-limestone soil, are able to withstand harsh climates and adverse weather conditions. They are south-facing, which ensures they receive enough hours of sunshine to guarantee optimum ripening of the grape clusters. Rainfall is medium to low, with hot summers and cold winters. Daytime and night-time temperatures vary greatly throughout the ripening process, which significantly improves the quality of the grape.

Ico Variedades

Varieties

100% Tempranillo, harvested by hand.

Ico Elaboracion

Winemaking

The must undergoes a cold pre-fermentation maceration followed by alcoholic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. It is pumped-over frequently in order to achieve optimum colour extraction. Weekly stirring and malolactic fermentation on the lees then takes place in carefully selected French oak barrels from the best cooperages in the world.

Ico Envejecimiento

Aging

The wine is left to age for 16 months in barrels of French oak, followed by at least 26 months in the bottle before it is ready to go on sale.

Ico Notas De Cata

Tasting notes

This very special Reserva has tremendous complexity, boasting a veritable symphony of flavours. The barrel-aging underlines and complements the exuberance of the ripe fruit that characterises our longest-aged wine. Dark chocolate, raisins and sultanas, chocolate liqueurs, eucalyptus, roasted coffee beans and cream all vie for attention. In the mouth it is voluminous, strong, ample, full-bodied and refined, with an agreeable finish that leaves a deep, long-lasting aftertaste as a powerful reminder of the wine’s personality.

Ico Maridaje

Pairing

The perfect accompaniment for legumes, pasta, semi-cured and long-cured cheeses, wild mushrooms, and especially fatty meats such as steak and other red meat.
