Technical Sheet

Crianza
Grapes

Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) and Merlot.

Harvest

The grapes are harvested at its optimum maturity stage, by hand and transported on small trailers of less than 4,000kg.

Elaboration

Once the grape is in the winery, it is passed through a grain sorting table, and therefore they are softly de-stemmed and slightly crushed.

Fermentation

Alcoholic – We realize a cold soak for 48 h. in an inert atmosphere for a better extraction of fruity aromatic compounds from the grape.  Ferments during 12 days at a controlled temperature set at 26ºC, in truncated cones stainless steel tanks of 17.000l. of capacity and we perform a post-fermentative maceration of 20 days.

Malolactic – It remains in the tanks with its fine lees during 30 days, and we do a gentle battonage for increasing the volume in the mouth.

Barrel

Aged in French Oak Barrels for 14 months.

Tasting notes Red cherry color and claret rim. Red wild berries aromas with balsamic and some spicy notes from the French oak, that provides delicacy and elegance. It tastes fleshy and powerful in the mouth, yet balanced, refined and silky.
