THE WINERY SAYS
The main variety is Tempranillo, which is complemented by others, such as Mazuelo, Garnacha and even Viura, representing the most traditional plantations in the area. In this harvest, the winemaker, Julio Sáenz, made his own 'personal selection' of plots, choosing the Martelo, Camino de la Iglesia, Altos de Vallecilla and Las Cuevas vineyards. The vines in them are over 60 years old, distributed across north-south facing slopes, with good exposure to the sun and wind, achieving balanced ripeness and magnificent condition.
