The harvest takes place at night. Once it arrives at the winery, the grapes are cooled to preserve all their aromatic components. Before the maceration and the fermentation, the best berries are selected on vibrating selection tables. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. Before it is bottled, the wine is aged for 3 months in oak barrels.
Príncipe de Viana Garnacha Viñas Viejas is a fruity, juicy and elegant wine. The aromas of ripe red fruit stand out on a slightly roasted background.
