The grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in traditional granite ‘lagares’, where an intense maceration in order to obtain the best possible extraction is fundamental for a good final result. This wine aged 20 months in wooden barrels in the cellars of the Quinta before bottling. It should age in bottle for 8 to 15 years before attaining the complexity and bouquet characteristic of a Vintage.
