The Rioja from Benjamin de Rothschild y Vega Sicilia is called the Macan Classico. The color of the Macan Classico is dark purple. On the nose it has an enviable exuberance of ripe red fruits, but balanced in such a way that nothing explicitly stands out. The wine is slightly more exuberant and slightly less complex than its older brother. In the mouth the wine is very pleasant. No excessive fruit bomb, but everything very delicate. Macan Classico is made from 100% tempranillo from an approximately 30-year-old vineyard. The wine was aged for 15 months in French oak (70% new and 30% used). After this upbringing it was bottle matured for another 2 years. The wine is released in very small editions and has limited availability.

Álvarez and de Rothschild invested approximately 26 million euros in, among other things, the purchase and establishment of 110 hectares of vineyards and the construction of a new production facility in Samaniego. A large part (65ha) of the vineyards is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, where the people are known as Maçanes. So it is no coincidence that the new company bears the name Macán. It is interesting to mention that Alvarez bought the vineyard from Fernando Remirez de Ganuza. The other top producer from Rioja.

Vega Sicilia Macán markets two wines, the Macán and the Macán Clásico, both a full-blooded Rioja of 100% Tempranillo. The Clásico is the basic wine, the Mácan the prestige cuvée, avoiding the term Reserva.
