Characteristics of Licinia
Licinia is a wine produced in the traditional style of Bordeaux, at a very controlled temperature in order to preserve the aromas and the authenticity of the varieties or the area. It is aged for 10-12 months in new French oak barrels.
The vineyard of the winery Bodegas Licinia follows the organic farming methods; therefore, the wine is produced without using neither chemical treatments nor weed-killers.
Regarding its production, the vintage is chilled in chambers for two days before being processed in order to preserve all the characteristics of the grape that will be reflected in the wine. In the triage table, the bunches that do not follow 100% all the quality standards are discarded.

Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
