The Grenache vineyard, in Fitero, is over 70 years old while the Graciano vineyard, situated in Corella, is over 40 years old. The harvest is carried out manually.
The production process begins with fermentation in open 500litre French oak barrels. The wine is then decanted into 225litre second use French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, before being aged.
