WINE MAKING NOTES
The grapes are de-stemmed and processed separately in a 3000-liter tanks by spontaneous fermentation with yeasts from Mencía. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, 80% of each tank is aged separately in 225-liter French oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation in a natural way and then ages for 8 months. At 8 months the coupage is refreshed with 20% of unaged wine. The wine rests and is filtered for several weeks by gravity. No further clarification or filtering is carried out prior to bottling to guarantee its complexity and structure. The bottling is carried out in August while it is placed in boxes for a perfect rest without movement in the bottle to fully integrate its characteristics.
Ruby red with violet edges. On the nose Very expressive, lively and great aromatic potential, with notes of berries, raspberry and bramble. On the palate leaves wide velvety sensations, with good acidity and an expressive tannic finish, highlighting the vigor and fruitiness of its tannin. Overall, it stands out for its harmonious character and the strength and nobility of the varietal identity.
WINE MAKING NOTES
The grapes are de-stemmed and stored in 2200-liter tank where it ferments spontaneously after a few days in cold maceration. The fermentation with autochthonous yeast is combined with daily movements two times a day in order to homogenize the deposit and make the fermentation easier. The malolactic fermentation is done slowly in the 225 liter barrels, old barrels to avoid too much woody taste and keep the natural flavors. The ageing is done for 14 months and several decantation processes are carried out, so the wine is naturally filtered before being bottled. The bottling is done in March and bottles are kept resting without movements for some months, so the characteristics are integrated before going on sale.
