In the difficult art of creating great wines, we combine the wisdom of tradition and the state of the art. In addition to the century-old winery in Haro, we have modern facilities located in Labastida where we make wine from our own grapes with the help of the most advanced technology.

Oak is at the core of the ageing process and we therefore manufacture our own barrels —which currently number about 30,000— using completely artisanal methods. With import the wood from the United States and dry it in the open air for two years. Our coopers make every barrel in the cooperage of our hundred-year-old facilities in Haro.

Every six months, we manually rack every barrel under candlelight. It is an art to enhance the development of the wine, removing sediments in a natural way and monitoring each barrel individually.

After a stay in barrels, the wines continue ageing in the bottle, where they polish their personality, rounding off and fully developing all their qualities.

Vintage 2010
Review

This is mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 13.5% alcohol, and it matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years, during which time the wine was racked every six months. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with the classical aromas, great detail and nuance, very good balance and persistence. They consider 2010 among the best years of this century, and maybe future generations will talk about 2010 like we talk about the great classical vintages of yesterday today. The palate is polished but shows plenty of energy and tension, the tannins are very fine and elegant, and the flavors are focused and clean. This has to be one of the greatest wines from the vintage. A legend in the making. 150,000 bottles produced.
