Carefully selected 100% Tempranillo, harvested by hand from 20-40 year-old vines from clay-chalky soil in vineyards in Laguardia: San Cristóbal, La Media Legua, Prado de las Albas and La Laguna. The grapes were de-stemmed and then fermented in 25,000 stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 26-28°C. After 7-10 day maceration, the malolactic fermentation took place in order to ensure the correct acidity. It was then aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.
