Harvest: Manual, in boxes of 18 kg, on October 14. It was necessary to make a large selection in the field and in the winery, which reduced the production to half of the usual. Varieties: 100% Tempranillo. Elaboration: The grapes remained overnight in a cold room between 8-10ºC of temperature, for their subsequent pre-fermentative cold maceration, for 4 days. Fermented in open storage for another 8 days, with a subsequent maceration of 16 days. It was bled directly into the barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. Aging: 18 months in French (90%) and American (10%), new and second wine barrels. Analytical: Alcohol: 14% vol. / PH: 3.63 / Total acidity: 5.5 g / l / Volatile acidity: 0.61 g / l. Tasting note: Cherry red very alive. Nose rich in nuances, with smoked and spicy notes (cinnamon, black pepper) and black fruit on a background of thickets and dry stone. In the mouth appear toasted notes of oak and a center of ripe fruit. We are facing a medium-bodied red with firm tannins and good acidity, excellent ingredients for aging. There is also a certain austerity, the reflection of a poor soil and a cold vintage
