Luis Saenz Tempranillo Rioja Red Wine

Winemaking: These grapes are harvested by hand in small trailers of 2500 kg and transported to the winery. A selection is made on a table where the berries are separated from the stems. Then, the first fermentation is made in a small deposit of 12,000 kg., maceration is done to extract more aromas and fruit flavors and pleasant tannins. Later, we press and second fermentation, called malolactic, occurs in American and French new oak barrels. Once the second fermentation is over, we rack the wine and we store for one year in these barrels already cleaned. Once the aging process is finished, it is bottled and remains bottled for a year.
