A feature that distinguishes Tentenublo is the special situation of its 7 hectares of vineyards, spread over 19 plots located between Viñaspre and Lanciego, one of the lesser known areas of the Rioja region. The incredible diversity of these plots led to the diverse wines that Tenteublo produces, in all cases being very small unique plots so final production is only a handful of very unique great Rioja wines.

The Las Paredes comes from the most small and special 100-year-old vineyard of only 0.37 hectares with sandy soil and high iron content. Hence undoubtedly the mineral expression that makes the character of this great red rioja so unique. The wine has been aged for 12 months in French and Hungarian oak and is a blend of Tempranillo and Grenache. The wine is full-bodied and very complex. The proportions are perfect. In the nose we smell leather, coffee, chocolate and red fruit and the mouth beautiful notes of flowers and beautiful ripe fruit. Power but also a lot of balance. This is a modern style Rioja wine of which only 300 bottles were made.

In some cases, the wines are given a kind of WAX seal instead of a regular capsule. This has no further purpose and has the disadvantage that it hardens fairly quickly and pieces can easily crumble (spontaneously, during transport, etc.). This has no influence on the quality of the wine. We cannot give any further guarantee for this.
