Terroir Notes: The vineyards of La Antigua are located in Rioja Alta, with the mountains of Sierra Cantabria to the north and the mountains of Sierra de la Demanda to the south. These north facing vineyards experience cooler temperatures, resulting in grapes that ripen more slowly, hence showcasing flavors of greater balance and focus. Due to the steepness of the parcels, all important vineyard work must be done by hand.

Winemaking Notes: 10% of the wine is aged under natural flor from the Same Rioja origin. The wine is estate bottled.
