The stony vineyards of Valdepeñas, where the soil is clayey lime, are found in the center of Spain where the continental climate - cold winters and hot dr y summers is suited to producing intensely fruity, long-lasting red wines. The Tempranillo grapes we re hand-picked from 30 year old vines. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks before the ageing process began in a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak casks with different toasting le vels, achieving the complex bouquet and flavors of this exceptional wine.

Rating by The Wine Advocate

90 Points (2001 Vintage) - Wine Advocate, Issue # 195, June 2011
“Even better is the 2001 Gran Reserva (from a superior vintage). Deeper in color than the 2003 [Aged 7 Years] and with greater complexity both aromatically and on the palate, this outstanding value will provide pleasure for both mind
and body over the next 6 - 8 years.”


Gran Reserva wines undergo a minimum aging period of 60 months, 18 of which are spent in oak barrels with a maximum capacity of 330 liters, and the remaining time in the bottle.
