The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from 15-25 year-old vines. After being hand harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tanks, with five to six days cold skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place. The wine is aged for four months in new oak barrels (75-percent American and 25-percent French oak). It has an additional four months of ageing in the bottle before leaving the cellar.
