Bottle size and vintage
A Tempranillo (75%), Sauvignon (10%) and Merlot (15%) blend created with Carmelo Rodero's distinctive touch that deserves all the accolades it receives both at home and abroad. The grapes are sourced from the winery's own vineyards, selected from vines more than 40 years old.
