Elaboration and aging
Own Vinedos located in the Finca Ygay . The vineyards of Ygay occupy an area of 300 hectares surrounding the winery, in the Rioja Alta, with a difference in altitude from 320 meters to 485 meters. Elaborated with the varieties 93% Tempranillo, 4% Mazuelo, 2% Graciano, 1% Garnacha . Harvesting is done manually, the bunches are despalled and squeezed gently. The varieties ferment separately in stainless steel tanks, with temperature control. The encubado has a duration of 8 days during which pumping and punching are carried out, to favor the contact of the must with the skins and to provoke a slow and natural extraction of aromas and polyphenols. After the fermentation the solid parts of the grape are pressed in vertical presses, by means of a smooth and slow process that favors the extraction of the color and mature tannins that they reside in the skin.
Parenting Process : Raised for 2 years in American oak barrels of 225 liters capacity, of which 8 months is spent in new barrels and its aging is finalized with a round of 24 months in the bottle.
