The final yield of this wine is only 575 liters per ton of grapes, although occasionally it could be higher if the weather favors an early maturation, without losing much water.

During its aging in wood, it produces a controlled "soft battonage" process in which new cask is avoided, so that the astringency and power of the oak, together with the intensity of its process, do not cause elegance or balance to be lost. final score.
