Manual harvest on 21/09/12, in optimum ripeness conditions with a double picking, separating those bunches that did´nt satisfy the required quality characteristics. The grapes came from San Gregorio Grande plot, 3.7 ha planted in 1979 and 1989 (two areas). Alcoholic fermentation took place in 100 hectoliters French oak vats at a controlled temperature of 28° to 30° C for 8 days, after maceration of another 7 days, malolactic fermentation took place in new french oak barrels and aging remained in 100% new french (90%) and 100% new hungarian (10%) oak. After 15 months, the wine was bottled for a year.
