Wine Description

Tempranillo was harvested on the 30th of September and Mazuelo on October the 10th. Grapes are first carefully
de-stemmed, squeezed and then fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks for 11 days, with daily “remontage” and “pigeage” processes which help its wine to develop its own personality.
Both these processes ensure maximum color and aroma, without producing excessive tannins.
