THE HARVEST

The altitude of the vineyards (900 m+) helps to obtain optimal ripening of the grapes and good polyphenol levels and low yields. The vineyards are an average of 20 years, with a thin, unfertile organic topsoil with limestone rock underneath and situated in the area of La Revilla, Santa María, El Obispo y El Buey.

VINIFICATION

90% Tinta Fina (Tempranillo), 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. After destemming, grapes are placed in small 10,000 and 20,000 kg fermentation tanks and pre-macerated at a low temperature for six days, allowing excellent extraction of aroma, colour and soft tannins. r The wine is decanted three times before being bottled.

THE AGEING

The wine is aged for six months in barrels of French oak originating from the best forests of France such as Allier, Vosgues and Nevers.
