The top model and flagship of Bodegas Pujanza. The wine comes from the Cisma vineyard which is located at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria at an altitude of 600 meters. The vines are over 100 years old (pre-phylloxera and ungrafted) and only 0.8 hectares in size. As you may know, after the grape disease in the early 1900s, almost all vines were destroyed and all new plantings were grafted onto American vines that are resistant. 99% of all vineyards are based on grapes grafted on the American vine but there are still a number of authentic, very small vineyards that still have the unique original vines that have not been grafted and the Cisma is one of these rare versions.

The Cisma already belongs to the international top and has acquired a cult status (certainly because there are only a very limited number of bottles of this top wine). The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 24 months and then matured in the bottle for over a year. This is a very complex wine. The wine has a beautiful ruby red color in the glass. It has an intense nose with seductive aromas of red and black berries, with fine roasted notes, soft fresh herbs, leather, truffle, licorice and beautiful mineral notes (pencil point). Intense, powerful with an impressive attack with flavors of candied fruit. In the mouth, the attack is very refined with silky tannins and beautifully refreshing acidity. Perfectly balanced with a very nice structure with a persistent and long finish. Clearly one of the largest Riojas in existence. Only 1111 bottles were made of this unique wine. All bottles are numbered.
