Vinification: From limestone-rich soils, quite unusual in Bierzo. The vineyard (100-120 year old vines) is on a southeast-facing slope at 620 meters altitude. Whole clusters fermented in two open-top 225- liter oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, foot trodden and with a long maceration. It matured in those barrels after being pressed for one year. 268 bottles produced.
