Wine Description

Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from a selection of the best cluster from Torrosillo vineyard older than 75 yearswith loamy clay with marls soil. Yield 1Kg/bush vine. Elevation 840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tank of 7,500 L, with two days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation.  An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation in barrels taking place.  Egg white clarification. The wine is aged for a maximum of twenty-one months in new French barrels.  It is then aged an additional two years in bottle before leaving the cellar.

The 2014 harvest was characterized by a high yield production. The climatology conditions were very good along the cycle, very healthy vintage and especially along September. The early harvesting September 28th-gave to the wines powerful fruit aromas, sweet tannins, intense colour and adequate acidity for aging into barrels accompanied by a proper degree of alcohol.
