Organic Rioja wine made from grapes of the Tempranillo and Garnacha Tinta varieties, located in small plots in the town of Badarán planted in 1940 and 2007. Harvested by hand at their optimum ripeness at the end of September and the beginning of October 2015 .
The vinification is carried out in small production tanks, carrying out a classic alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures of 22-24ºC, with daily soft and manual pump-overs, during the early stages of fermentation. Managing to respect the fresh and fruity aromas of the Grenache and without performing macerations to avoid unnecessary extractions, respecting the grape as in a traditional preparation.
After fermentation, we bleed the tanks to extract, by the simple force of gravity, the highest quality wine, helping it later with a traditional treading of the grape without the need to subject it to pressing.
