Can you see the stars? It seems that they only exist at night, but in reality, these small glimpses of light were already spotted by our ancestors. Just like you, they also saw this sign in the sky, the trace of one thousand stars.
100% Tempranillo, aged six months in French and American oak barrels.
A medium-deep red colour with violet glints. The nose displays red berry fruit aromas mingling delightfully with notes of spice, cinnamon and vanilla. Fleshy, full and balanced on the palate with good length of flavour and a pleasant finish.
Wine and art form part of the same universe. The culture and traditions of wine have always featured prominently in paintings.
Joan Miró, who was fascinated by the night as an indeterminate and infinite space, painted in 1968 ‘Oiseau dans la Nuit’ (Bird in the Night). The work is an allegory, in which the main character is an inhabitant of the night, gliding through the darkness untethered and with a free spirit, the same free spirit with which we make our Lleiroso Colección de Familia.
In this edition of Reserva Especial, the bottles carry the seal of Joan Miró’s ‘Oiseau dans la Nuit’ on their labels.
This distinctive and original detail, which at the same time brilliantly reflects the captivating, evocative power of wine in complete harmony with the artist’s abstract painting, endows the bottle with a magnetic charm and character.
Lleiroso Colección de Familia is a wine that breaks with the past and reaches forward to bring the worlds of wine and art into ever-closer proximity.
This wine has been made in harmony with the art of the painter Joan Miró, the creator of the painting on the label of this magnificent Reserva wine.
Tempranillo grapes are sourced from old vines with stringent sorting of the fruit both in the vineyard and on its arrival at the cellars. The wine is aged eighteen months in new French oak barrels. It shows a deep ruby-red colour with dense tears running down the inside of the glass. Intense aromas with jammy ripe red berry fruit come through, together with toasty oak notes brought by the barrel. The wine is powerful, elegant and expressive on the palate with balsamic hints and the characteristic minerality of the vineyard’s terroir.
The close relationship between wine and art has been in evidence throughout history. From Egyptian frescoes, which depicted scenes of grape treading, to works by renowned contemporary artists such as Picasso and Dalí, an infinite variety of artistic depictions of wine-related themes have been made, each of them showing the unique and inimitable interpretation of its author.
