The grapes for this wine come from wine plots in San Carlos. They are picked at night and immediately slightly bruised and crossed into a stainless steel tub. When the soaked skins have separated from the pulp, the winemakers start the fermentation in cooled tanks. Specially selected yeasts provide the wine with the tastiest aromas.

Serve it with slow-cooked beef like short ribs or a T-bone, or rosemary lamb shank. Service temperature of 17–18ºC, ideally decanted prior to serving. Aging potential of 8–9 years.
