Over 200 small estate parcels throughout the municipality of Corullón make up this beautiful red wine. Its combination of generosity and precision confirms not only Corullón’s special status, but also the superiority of Álvaro’s and Ricardo’s winemaking.

The vineyard slopes are steep (30-50 degrees). The wine is primarily Mencia with a small percentage of white grapes. The grapes are harvested, sorted, and destemmed by hand. They macerate for 25 days in oak fermentors with hand punch down. Maturation occurs in French oak. It is not fined or filtered before bottling.
