VINIFICATION AND AGEING

Still a year before the harvest and vinification, the grapes of the different varieties that make up the Family Collection, were duly selected and monitored according to the oenological objective. These grapes harvested in their ideal state of maturity in 20 kg boxes were vinified separately. The entire process was carried out by gravity for the fermentation vats, and this took place for 20 days with a prolonged maceration that provides this wine with unique characteristics of ripe fruit. Its aging period of 14 months in new French wood, gives it a great aromatic amplitude and a remarkable balance throughout its long life. The bottle matures for more than 14 months.
