ELABORATION

Once we have chosen the best grapes form El Musco, we introduce them in stainless steel vats of 5.000 litres where the pre-fermentative maceration takes place for the next 7 days. When the primary fermentation is started, 3 or 4 daily overpumping are done during 7 days. After finishing this fermentation, the maceration continues together with the skins for the next 20 days. The malolactic fermentation is also done in these vats and then the wine is transferred into barrels of 500 litres. After this time in the barrels, it is transferred into concrete tanks to round it up and get that long, structured and persistent wine that characterizes it. Afterwards, the wine is bottled, where it will spend a minimum of 14 months before entering the market.
