    Winemaker's Notes:

    The phrase "Big Bang" has several connotations. It can mean origin, birth, Genesis... Thus, this wine is the basis of all the wine produced by "Exopto Wine Cellar". Based on three wine varietals that are always present in our wines, "Big Bang" can also mean exploder, mix or merger. This is what we wish to express in this young, fresh, newborn. A wine whose explosion of fruity aromas with a touch of wood allows consumers to enjoy the merger of the three dominant varietals of Rioja. A wine of pleasure, easy-to-understand, the first step in our product range.

    50% Garnacha / 40% Tempranillo / 10% Graciano

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 b.b. (Big Bang) is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 40% Tempranillo, and 10% Graciano. The Graciano and Tempranillo components were aged in barrel for 9 months. It displays aromas of white pepper, spice box, tobacco, cassis, and black cherry leading to a medium-bodied, moderately complex wine with ample sweet fruit, good balance, and a pleasure-bent personality. Drink this outstanding value over the next 5-6 years
