Following a pre-fermentation maceration to ensure maximum extraction of color and aromas, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10 days at 26º C.
Ageing takes place in barrels made from American and French oak, which are mildly toasted so as not to alter the original character and to prolong the ageing process. The wine is racked every six months, removed from the barrels and then clarified after 12 months ageing. It is then decanted for 25 days and bottled directly without any type of filtration. An additional 12 months of bottle ageing is conducted before the wine is released in the market.

Recommended with steaks and other red meats, casseroles, stews, lamb, Spanish chorizo sausages, hard and blue cheeses.
