Grapes from our best vineyards around the villages of Villalba, Briones  and Torremontalbo, which are over 40 years old, were carefully selected  in the vineyard.
 On arrival at the winery, the grapes were placed into a cold room for 24 hours. Then a further selection of the grapes was made on a sorting  table after which they were transferred by gravity to large oak vats for the alcoholic fermentation.
 The wine was then aged for two years in French and American oak barrels  followed by two years in bottle in our centenary cellars until its  release to market.

85% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, Mazuelo & Garnacha.
