The soil is argilo-calcareous and the sub-soil is pure limestone at one meter under the surface. The altitude of the vineyard is 900 meters over the sea level. All these provides its distinctive features
ELABORATION AND AGEING
The grapes are picked by hand at their optimum ripeness. The bunches are brought to the winery in plastic crates of 15 kilograms and sorted on a sorting table. After de – stemming, the grapes are pumped into stainless-steel vats where they will stay in for several days at a cool temperature and the alcoholic fermentation will take place there.
The swift ageing in American and French oak barrels for 6 months developed a wine full of fruit but with maturity and elegance.
The 2011 vintage was an exceptional at Ribera del Duero region an especially in our estate La Planta.
