The Macan Clasico is a joint venture between Tempos Vega Sicilia and the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild. It is single-varietal 100 % Tempranillo. The grapes come from limestone plots with a slightly more sandy-loam profile in the foothills of Sierra de Cantabria in Rioja. 50 % new oak barrels were used for ageing, giving greater weight to the fresher profiles, and 10 % American oak barrels to work on smoothness. The Macán Clásico conveys the purest expression of Rioja Tempranillo, with its profile being somewhat warmer and firmer yet extremely harmonious.
