"It’s a blend of Tempranillo with 20% Graciano that they describe as neoclassical. They rent a 50-year-old vineyard on limestone soils in the zone of Baños de Ebro-San Vicente. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in a combination of American and French oak barrels for 14 months.”- Luis Gutierrez
