Of the rarest varieties, Gual and Sabro, two vines settled to los Llanos Negros, where the finesse and personality are concentrated.
This wine has been made with the varieties Sabro (62%) and Gual (38%), from 60-100 year old vines. It is macerated on it’s skins and followed by a partial fermentation with it’s own yeasts in a stainless steel tank for seven days. It completes the fermentation in french oak barrels of 230 litres. Here it remains on its lees for more complexity. In case there are proteins left it’s clarified.
