Old vineyards are growned with traditional “cordon” conduction system while young ones are placed in telegraph system.
Main variety is Listán Negro coming from several plots: LosGeranios, El Montijo, Las Terrazas, Los Pasitos Cordón, Los Sauces and la Florida. Every vineyard is harvested separately and so fermented in stainless steeland concrete tanks with controled temperature, with a short fermentation and soft maceration of grape skins. Depending on the vintage, part of the wine makes malolactic fermentation and further aging in small concrete tanks 500 litres volume; meanwhile, the rest remains in french oak casks 500 litres volume. As a result we obtain a fresh wine where the primary aromas of Listán stand out
