Wine Description

Harvest method: By hand, selecting individual clusters

Varietal: 100% Tempranillo

Barrel Ageing: 15 months (French oak barrels)​


HARVEST AND PRODUCTION

Harvesting is carefully done by hand, selecting the best plots according to soil type, exposure to sunlight, and location. Only the best vineyards at their optimal point of polyphenolic maturation are used. This wine has a highly distinctive character.

After harvest, our must is macerated for 35 days to extract the grape's full potential and to obtain the powerful, elegant wines that characterise Pinna Fidelis.

The wine was placed in barrels made of French oak from the finest coopers, without being clarified or filtered, where it aged for 15 months. We took great care of the wine while it was in the barrels, regularly conducting batonage, topping it and racking it in the spring and autumn.

Finally, the wine was fined to being bottled.
