Tasting sheet


The harvest, always manual, allows us to make the first selection of grapes in the vineyard itself. It arrives in 14kg boxes at our warehouse, thus beginning a long and very delicate process. We skipped the maceration, thus achieving a different structure in this wine. It will continue its aging in the large French oak Fudres where it will rest until reaching a total of 24 months of rest, thus completing its rounding with the same period of time in our bottle rack. Each one of the steps of the Ancestral elaboration is faithfully traced following the traditional recipe of our ancestors, the predecessors of the current Denomination of Origin.

CATA's notes

Elegant aromatic range in which the fruity contribution of ripe strawberry and raspberry is enhanced with aromas of cloves and nutmeg, tea leaves, and some graphite. It has an elegant and smooth wood. On the palate, it is a deep, fresh and refined wine; with a long finish and velvety tannins. If there is something that makes this wine stand out, it is undoubtedly the impeccable balance between each and every one of its components.
