Vineyard Notes: Vines are sourced from the Rio Sordo MGA; they were planted between 1958 and 1978.
Winemaking Notes: The skins remain in contact with the must during fermentation, which that lasts between 28-30 days. Fermentation occurs naturally with native yeast. Malolactic fermentation completes in the cellar at temperature of 20°C (68°F). The wine ages in large traditional Slavonian and Swiss oak casks for 20 months and matures in the bottle for at least 8 months. No filtration or clarification is done.
Tasting Notes: Clean and sharp. Aromas include dark fruits, Mediterranean scrub and undergrowth. The palate shows dense tannin, good structure, and depth; it is very elegant with a long persistent finish.
