Vineyards over 85 years old.? Yields go from 3000 kg/ha to 3500 kg/ha. Clayey soils, mostly coming from La Teller?a plot, with west orientation. This plot is located on a hillside near Valtuille de Abajo, on The Way of Saint James. Manual harvested in small cases of 15 kg and grapes pass through a selection table to avoid bunches not according with our quality. We place the wine for alcoholic fermentation, which is taken in Stainless steel vats, trying to maintain temperatures steady below 28?C.

After the malolactic fermentation, which is taken in Stainless steel vats, we place the wine in 10.000 liter wooden foudre, for about 4-5 months for ageing, depending on the vintage.

Tasting Notes:
Intensive Red color with violets hints. On nose it is extremely fresh. Red fruits such as berries and wild berries; attached to the land of the Bierzo with toasted notes of smoke and licorice, are also present some touches of balsamic aromas, mainly mint. The wine is well structured on the palate, with great depth and a persistent fruit-driven finish. Perfect balance with very fresh tannins.
