Production: All the harvesting is done by hand into boxes (20 kilos), which are then maintained at 5ºC to conserve their varietal aromas to the maximum. A second selection is carried out to select the highest quality grapes. With red wines we make the maximum colour extraction. For this it is essential to harvest the grapes at the time of maximum fenolactic ripeness, process it at low temperature; completely destalk them and leave them to macerate in troncoconic tanks before their final maturation in French and American oak barrels.
