Food Matching: Ideal with hearty stews and roasted joints. Also excellent with game.

Vineyard: The grapes (25-30 different varieties), coming from parcels of old vines, were taken to the winery in 25 kg plastic boxes and inspected on a sorting table on arrival. The soil is schist and the vineyards are planted on socalcos (terraces supported by stone walls), with a Southeast facing aspect.

Vinification: The grapes were then completely destemmed and slightly crushed. After this, the must was transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Once the alcoholic fermentation was completed, the grape were gently pressed using hydraulic presses. 85% matured in French oak barrels and 15% in American oak for about 16 months.
