The clay-limestone soils of the high-altitude vineyards where this wine comes from define its intense and complex personality, with spicy and ripe fruit notes. It is balanced, fresh and smooth.

Mixture of calcareous clayey soils and sandy clay loam.
The 2019 harvest was performed with absolute normality, on the usual dates, with no incidents to report during the entire cycle. An intense and deep vintage, of good oenological quality. 2019 grape conditions and health were exceptional throughout the entire cycle, with an unusually high concentration in product quality, which ultimately results in highly concentrated wines. Temperatures during the viticultural year were considered normal according to historical data, accompanied by low annual rainfall (300 litres approx.), but with water reserves generated from the previous year. The vegetative cycle was a week later than average, but in good health. During the ripening process, we had a favourable climate with contrasting day-night temperatures which produced optimal ripeness, resulting in wines with a high aromatic content and ageing potential. This gives us a sensation of balance and freshness, as well as fruity sensations; always with a long-lasting finish on tasting.
AGEING: Twelve months in 225-litre French and American oak barrels.
