Static maceration for 10 days, with minimal intervention to avoid over extraction. Spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts in 20,000 kg tanks at temperatures not exceeding 26° C. Minimal amounts of sulfites are added.

Varieties
Mainly Tempranillo with the occasional wines of the white varieties and Graciano and Mazuelo.

Alcohol content:
14% ABV

Tasting notes

Visual

Great depth of color, with violet and red tones.

Nose

Intense and surprising for its frank aroma of berries, liquorice, undergrowth, hints of spice and chocolate.

Palate

Bold with great balance, full-bodied but fine and fresh at the same time, fruit and barrel notes returning in the aftertaste.
