HARVEST AND VINE SELECTION
Harvest of grapes from 40-year-old vines, classified as Very Good by the D. O. Rioja’s Regulatory Council. A dry year with high temperatures from May onwards. The rain at the end of September improved the physiological, phenolic and aromatic ripeness of the vines.

The wine is not clarified or filtered until the end of the process. It is aged in American barrels for 20 months, and a further 20 months in bottle.
