Vinification
Picked grapes are fermented for 9 days. At between 23˚C and 28˚C , followed by a maceration that lasts 10 days. The vines which produce this wine are all low bush. There is no irrigation or use of chemical fertilizer. A strict pruning in winter is followed by a green pruning in June. Picking is all sone by hand. The yield is three time less than from trellised vines, giving grapes that are three times superior in quality . The result : from each vine bush or "cepa ", just one bottle of wine is produced.
Tasting Notes
Dark cherry red. A great complexity andextraordinary intensity of aromas. Aromas of fruit and oak combine, showing notes of matyre, red fruit, leather and vanilla. Very well structured and balanced, the integration of alcohol and acidity is excellent and the retronasal finish is very dufferent to the classic Valduero style. This is due to the grapes.
Pairings
Red meat, blue fish, cured cheeses and cold meats. Recommended temperature: between 17˚C and 19˚C
