Amicis blanco fermentado en barrica (barrel fermented white) is the result of our passion for the Tempranillo Blanco variety and our motivation to make a unique wine with our region’s most typical grape, considered native to Rioja.
We believe Tempranillo Blanco to be a very versatile variety with a huge potential. For all these reasons, we decided to make our very first barrel fermented white wine.
