Description

The limestone soil and microclimate create a wine with unique characteristics. At this artisanal family-run Bodega, grapes are traditionally hand-picked and selected. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 11 days at 25oC, followed by an 8-day post-fermentation. The wine then ages for 9 months in American and French oak barrels.

The Denomación de Origen (D.O.) Castilla La Mancha, located in central Spain, is a vast Old World region with an exciting new story. A story of quality wines with unique character traits. Winters are bitterly cold and summers are hot, the sun shines 12-14 hours a day. Rain is scarce, so the vines are widely divided to allow each plant its share of the small amount of water that falls. There is one advantage due to Castilla La Mancha's challenging climate, only a few vineyard pests or diseases can survive, allowing grapes to grow disease-free in an ecological way. Castilla La Mancha is the largest wine region in all of Europe (450,000ha).
