Coming from well selected grapes, in perfect state of ripeness and manually harvested from our own vineyards around the Finca de San Rafael. Grapes that after destemming fermented in stainless steel tanks of 12,000 liters at 28-30 º C and after a post fermentative maceration of 15 to 20 days performed malolactic fermentation. This is followed by a transfer to used American 40% and French 60% oak barrels where they will remain for two years, an ageing that is completed with one year in the bottle, ageing in the openwork until it is released onto the market.
Tasting Notes Contino reserva
Intense ruby red colour, clean and bright. The nose is very expressive, highlights its fruity expression and finesse. The red fruits appear very well assembled with spicy notes. In the mouth, its excellent persistence and balance stand out..
