With the La Mancha Designation of Origin, it is made 100% with the Tempranillo grape variety. It has a long maceration with fermentation at a temperature of 24-25° C. After this process, it is aged for twelve months in mixed oak barrels (French oak bottoms and American oak staves). Before being marketed, it spends two years in the bottle.

In the mouth, it is a very round, smooth and elegant wine, with very sweet tannins, and great persistence.
