Located in the South of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The area is almost entirely encircled by both La Mancha Denominación de Origen on the North border and Andalusia on its Southern limits. It experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures reaching up to over 40 ºC in the summer and dropping to as low as -10 ºC in the winter.

Brilliant ruby in colour, the wine has fresh fruit aromas typical of the Tempranillo varietal, which are enhanced by wood and spices which result from a period spent ageing in oak barrels. The palate is full-bodied, complex with a long smooth finish.

Each grape variety is fermented separately and then blended by our expert winemakers. Modern wine making techniques are employed to produce a delicate wine.
