"This is a traditional young red wine made by blending Listan Negro, Listan Blanco and Negramoll varieties. The production process still obeys a number of age-old rules like maceration in small open tanks and fermentation in oak casks."
"This ruby red wine with violet hues smells of truffle, blackberry, minerals and other much more undefinable elements so characteristics of its varietal origin. It is a gutsy wine to drink, full of character and zest whit a slightly bitter finish that gives it a classy, original touch. This young wine is put on the market when five months old and should be drunk within two or three years."
"Our wines area a reflection of the traditional grape varieties used to blend them and the soil they grow in. They are mostly red wines with an original personality that can make them quite difficult to classify at times. They all have an attractive colour and mineral and fruit aromas that are fresh, full and bursting with life."
"They are wines that match the land they spring from. All of our labels are part of a limited production of wine that is bottled and individually numbered under the 'Denominacion de Origen Tacoronte-Acentejo'."
"This local supervisory body is responsible for quality control at both the production and bottling stage and endorses the wines through a back label on the bottle that guarantees the origin and quality of the wine within." - Winery
