GRAPE VARIETIES:
85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano grapes, hand-harvested from 40 to 60 year-old vines planted in our “Pago El Rincón” plot, located within the “Viña Lanciano” estate. The grapes are manually selected in our two sorting tables; only those grains in perfect sanitary and ripeness conditions are allowed into the next phase of vinification.

WINEMAKING:
De-stemmed and lightly crushed, the grapes are fermented in small, temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks at a high temperature to obtain maximum aromatic extraction. Malolatic fermentation took place in new 225 l. French oak barriques from the Tronçais and Jupille forests.

AGEING:
24 months in new French oak barrels from the Tronçais and Allier forests, followed by 20 months of rounding in the bottle in the perfect temperature and humidity conditions of our cellar.
