The 2015 harvest in La Mancha can be summarized
to have been higher in quality and lower in quantity.
An extremely hot summer, with endless heat waves
during July, and despite having a regular rainfall,
since the rainfall is “regularly” scarce, this causes
the hydrological balance as a whole to be deficient.
The hydrological deficit this year has conditioned
the harvest in the two descriptive variables of the
vintage: the harvest has been characterized by less
and smaller berries. The red wines are characterized
by a greater concentration, both alcoholic and phenolic, and by a lower acidity. The wines produced are
ideal to endure long ageing periods. However, more
time will be needed to refine the wines destined for
consumption in the next months as young wines.

Upon entering the winery, the grapes were inspected, destemmed and crushed to separate the
must, which was then fermented and macerated
in stainless-steel, self-emptying deposits along
with the skins for a total of 10 days at 25ºC.
Following fermentation, the wine was aged in
80 percent American and 20 percent French
oak for three months, in medium-high humidity
and temperatures between 13-16ºC. The barrel-ageing was followed by another four months
minimum in the bottle
