The vines grow on poor soils formed on volcanic rock, which contribute to the wine's minerality and fruitiness.

After maceration at controlled temperatures with manual movements, fermentation occurs in French oak barrels (80% from Allier, 10% from Vosges and 10% from Centres) of 500 litres.
In the same barrels, the wine is aged for 10-12 months.
Suertes del Marqués La Solana 2019 is a smooth red wine with fruity aromas, notes of wet earth and hints of sweet spices and tobacco. On the palate it is pleasant, juicy and easy to drink. A wine with refreshing acidity over a mineral background and a tasty and fruity finish.
