Denominacion de Origen
The winery is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
Multiple proprietary and contracted vineyards located in Ábalos and San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
Trellised and head trained goblet vineyards that are maintained and harvested entirely by hand.
Calcareous clay composition.
Continental with heavy Atlantic influences that are moderated by the Sierra Cantabria.
The grapes are carefully sorted, destemmed, and transferred to stainless steel tanks for maceration. After several days, the temperature controlled fermentation begins spontaneously. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is racked off by gravity and transferred to American and French oak Bordelaise barrels for malolactic fermentation, which occurs during the winter and spring.
18 months in American and French oak Bordelaise barrels on the fine lees, in the winery’s underground cellars. Bottled aged for at least 18 months underground.
An author wine from Ramirez de la Piscina, Selección Crianza is the result of a more elegant barrel treatment and a selection of finer, older vineyards.
