Cantogordo Viñedo Único
The Tempranillo grapes from the Cantogordo vineyard are kept chilled at 6°C for 24 hours before going into a 700 litre, open-topped vat for a three day, pre-fermentation cold maceration. After three days, alcoholic fermentation begins at a controlled temperature of between 23ºC and 26ºC, with manual punching down of the cap. After racking, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in 500 litre French oak casks. It is then aged in the same casks for a further 15 months. The wine spends a final 15 months in bottle before leaving the winery.

Intense, brilliant ruby
Very long on the palate with granular tannins and a nice tension from the limestone base
Strong and straight attack over the palate thanks to the good acidity and crunchy tannins. The wine has a long finish.
